Mary, Mary


May 5-7, 10-14, 1966


Community Players Theatre


“Mary, Mary” tells the story of wise-cracking, cynical Mary and infuriating, sensible Bob. They are only recently divorced and haven’t seen each other in nine months. Mary and Bob meet at his apartment in the hope that they can avert an IRS audit. A snowstorm forces Mary to spend the night, and the following morning, mutual friend and lawyer Oscar, Hollywood heartthrob and neighbor, Dirk Winters, and Bob’s considerably younger finance, Tiffany arrive on the scene. The comedy’s humor is derived from discussions about income taxes, marriage, alimony, divorce, remarriage, extra marital affairs, weight loss, exercise, and sex.

Historian’s Corner

“Mary, Mary” was the final play that Eula Brown O’Neill would direct for the Players. It would also be the last show in which Eula was involved. Eula played leading roles in eleven Players’ shows from 1928’s “A Doll’s House” to 1965’s “Gigi.” Eula also directed twenty-four plays for the Community Players beginning in 1939’s “Susan and God” through to “Mary, Mary” in 1966.
