The tables turn in “Mrs. Fifty Bakes a Pie,” a story of abuse, domination, power and baked goods. The play, written by Linda Ramsay-Detherage, will open at Ann Arbor’s Theatre Nova on Friday, June 1.
The story follows one 1960s housewife who is fed up with the notion that “women belong in the kitchen,” and when fate brings her into a dominatrix’s session she begins to explore a bolder side of herself, outside of the confines of her unhappy marriage. A story that Playbill describes as a a “hilariously twisted revenge fantasy” ensues as the housewife’s alter-ego “Mrs. Fifty” gets a chance to “dole out the punishment her husband deserves” using both bondage and baking.
The show will run at the Theatre Nova from Firday, June 1 through Sunday, June 24. Show times are at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and at 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets start at $20. More information about the performance can be found online at theatrenova.org. The venue is located at 410 W. Huron St., Ann Arbor.
