The Marriage Fool
The Marriage Fool
By Richard Vetere.

Cast: 2m., 2w. "Two generations looking for romance. Snappy wisecracks. A crowd-pleaser." (N. Y. Times) Frank's wife of forty years has died and now the tough, blue-collar man finds the world a different place without his wife taking care of everything for him. He decides to go to a local dance and there meets Florence, a 'Dolly Levi wisdom-spouting widow' who spirals the quiet Frank into a realm of happiness he didn't know he could enjoy - and he falls in love. Frank's son, Robert, is all personality and all womanizer. Terrified of commitment, a special new relationship with Susan throws him into turmoil. Frank announces his plans to marry Florence. Robert is aghast. Why would his father want to tie himself down again - and with Florence, of all women! "...a play about the lessons fathers pass on to their sons.. .about the ways of men with women. Mr. Vetere is sly about deciding which of the two men is the marriage fool." (Boston Herald) One int. set.
