In Mary, Mary Mrs. Kerr again turns her thoughts to- ward domestic strife. "Can a witty woman win in love?" is the question she poses. Or, "Who will win the practical, obtuse publisher—the practical, apricot-oriented health fiend or the impractical, airy and affable joke fiend?" We soon find out that this is just another case of opposites attracting. After five years of marriage and nine months of divorce, Mary and Bob McKellaway come together again and make some not-so-surprising discoveries about them- selves. Mary finds that Elizabeth Arden might keep her young but definitely doesn't keep her gay, and her husband Bob finds that man does not live by yogurt and com- mon sense alone.
Mary, Mary was first produced on Broadway in 1961 with Barbara Bel Geddes and Barry Nelson.
