Housewife Viv, would have perfectly understood Betty Friedan’s “The Feminine Mystique”, had she ever read it. But Viv is one of those women Friedan wrote about, stuck in suburbia trying to make sense of it all, with a baffled husband, and a young male boarder who disturbs them both. Perfectly All Right is a one-act play inspired by concepts from Pop Artist Claes Oldenburg’s Ray Gun Theatre in its staging and set.

First published by Currency Press, 1977.

First Produced by Theatre-Go-Round, 1973.
