Stuck in an abusive marriage, a middle-aged 1960s housewife stumbles into a dominatrix’s session and discovers a source of personal power that surprises everyone around her. Bondage and baking mix in a hilariously twisted revenge fantasy as her alter-ego “Mrs. Fifty” doles out the punishment her husband deserves and helps her discover that a woman’s place isn’t just in the kitchen.
Mrs. Fifty Bakes a Pie features Sarah Burcon, Jeannine Thompson, and Patrick O’Lear and is directed by Daniel C. Walker. The production team includes Forrest Hejkal (scenic design), Carla Milarch (costume and sound design), and Michelle Resnick (stage manager).
