The year is 1938 and newly laid-off perfumier Mary Hayes is trying to break into the male-dominated world of newspaper journalism.
Editor-in-Chief Bosco Godfrey sets a competition between his egotistical star reporter Jeff Kincaid and plucky Mary, assigning them to cover a society wedding.
If Jeff writes the better story, he gets to keep his job. If Mary wins, she will replace the ace newshound. An homage to those zany screwball comedies of that time period, this play is full of snappy period dialogue, outrageous characters and humour that packs a punch.
