ERMA BOMBECK: AT WIT'S END - Arizona Theatre Company - November 15-December 2, 2018



BY MARGARET ENGEL AND ALLISON ENGEL


WE’VE COME A LONG WAY, BABY

A loving tribute to the Ohio wife and mother turned longtime Arizona resident who made herself into a national superstar as a best-selling author and syndicated journalist lauded for opening up the secret world of the mother and housewife. A comic look at one of our country’s most beloved voices – a voice that reassures us that yes, the world is sometimes crazy, but if we look at it and laugh, we have most of it covered. A voice who captured the frustrations of her generation by asking, “If life is a bowl of cherries, what am I doing in the pits?” Chock full of the wit and wisdom of the woman herself, this one-woman tour-de-force allows Erma to tell her own story, leading us through her years lampooning life in the suburbs in her nationally syndicated newspaper column called “At Wit’s End.” From her troubled childhood, where she found comfort in the words of Dorothy Parker and Robert Benchley, through her rise to fame as a journalist and public figure, discover the story behind America’s beloved humorist who championed women’s lives with wit that sprang from the most unexpected place of all – the truth.
