After World war II, John takes the idea of helping an Army pal way too far, marrying his buddy’s gal so he can bring her to the U.S as a surprise for his friend. He then plans to divorce her and marry his real fiancee, Mary. Things do not work out at all as planned in this hilarious farce.

John Loves Mary Preview (Curtain Calls 6.5, January 2011)

Along with the revival of “John Loves Mary,” a special Word War II Popular Culture presentation was given by Sally Parry and Bob McLaughlin. Their topic covered homecoming servicemen and their readjustment to non-military life. They also discussed how their wartime experiences changed both the service men and women and how they in turn changed society.
