        Divorce Southern Style

Divorce Southern Style

an established favorite with stock theatres, this fast-paced, wildly funny farce centers on the zany schemes of a middle-aged divorcee who decides that the time is ripe to get back together with her ex-husband. Divorced for fifteen years, and running low on cash, eleanor Bander decides reconciliation with her ex-husband (whose second wife died the year before) is her best hope. To lure him within striking range, she tells him that their daughter is about to be married-hinting that it is a forced situation-when the truth is that the daughter is merely engaged again (for the fifth time) to her long-standing fiance. the ex-husband, Walter, not only arrives but brings along his current flame, a former classmate who was eleanor's competition from high-school days. as the plot thickens, which it does with growing hilarity, eleanor's friends and neighbors become involved in the action, culminating in a sur-prise birthday party where the truth, at last, comes out. But Walter is pre-pared to forgive and forget, and falls easily into eleanor's trap. So easily, in fact, that eleanor is the one who now has second thoughts-deciding that it is better, after all, to stay single and broke than to resume the bickering that drove her away from Walter in the first place.
