The Secret Affairs of Mildred Wild

This kooky comedy by Paul Zindel takes place in the tiny living quarters behind the Greenwich Village candy store, which Mildred (played by Pat Harris) operates with her husband (played by Trae Norman). Mildred meets each crisis with a hilarious fantasy-scene drawn from her precious collection of more than 3,000 oId movies.

As the action moves swiftly ahead to its delightfully unpredictable climax, Mildred's life is further complicated by such unlikely visitors as a bulldozer, a nun (played by Tina Oswald), King Kong, and a super-efficient TV camera crew, all adding to the touching, funny escapades of its kooky, lovable and totally enchanting heroine. Also appearing in this madcap comedy are Tim Hogle, Cynthia Hughes, Katarina Ireland, Steve Josephsen, Lisa Norman, David Norton and Wanda Schenk.
