Her efforts to improve her mind and soul have brought her to the conclusion that she will never be more than mediocre; a feeling reinforced by her elderly mothers constant complaints about her shortcomings and her husbands altruistic dedication to serving the needs of the homeless. While wallowing in her mid-life crisis, flamboyant childhood friend Lee Green inserts herself into Marjories depression, becoming a permanent guest in the Taub household. Lee succeeds in not only drawing Marjorie out of her dark mood, but in affecting her marriage as well.Deborah Burke, who plays Green, has been seen on the WCT stage in Dial M for Murder, The Diary of Anne Frank, London Suite, Im Not Rappaport and The Prisoner of Second Avenue, and in multiple productions with Curtain Call, the Darien Arts Center and Town Players of New Canaan.

Andrea Garmun has been part of the community theater scene for over 30 years and is reprising her role of Frieda, which she has played in two other area productions.Past productions include Fiddler on the Roof, Hollywood Arms, The Last Romance, The Hallelujah Girls, Nuts, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Diary of Anne Frank, The Music Man, The Wedding Singer, Sabrina, and Enter Laughing. Randye Kaye, who plays Marjorie, is a member of Equity Actors Association and is appearing on the WCT stage under a special appearance contract. Kaye has worked as a radio broadcaster (STAR 99.9, WSHU, and her podcast The Life Talk Show) and is a published author, speaker, audiobook narrator, voice talent, teacher and singer.
