Mrs. Brooks has had enough. Her iron-fisted husband makes her keep a daily time schedule, detests her daughter’s fiance, and has caused one of her sons to take to living on the roof in rebellion. Taking matters into her own hands, Mrs. Brooks starts to embrace non-conformity and sets in motion an epic battle of wits. Charlie L. Russell’s 1969 play tackles politics, race, and women’s liberation with sharp wit and biting humor.

Written by Charlie L. Russell

Directed by Runako Jahi
