Set in pre-women's liberation 1955, Mrs. California is a peek into the past as home makers vie for the titles of the "ideal-woman", a happy, good and beautiful home-maker. Judged in categories such as ironing, sewing and cooking, the competition is cutthroat and culminates when Dot, a finalist, follows her conscience instead of the rules. 

The actors playing the contestants MUST believe in their presentations. Do whatever you can to not condescend them. This play is not about the cuteness of the 1950s. It is about the dangers of the “housewife state”.
