The Secret Affairs of Mildred Wild


Opening night is Friday, May 4, 2018


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 Bill Small). Whenever the outside world intrudes, be it her husband, his meddling sister (played by Lisa Norman), their hard-boiled landlady (played by Wanda Schenk), the mincing butcher from next door (played by Tim Hogle), or the foreman of the wrecking crew (played by Trae Norman) sent to tear down the building, Mildred meets each crisis with a hilarious fantasy-scene drawn from her precious collection of over 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 merriment and, ultimately, to the poignancy which infuses the play and the touching, funny escapades of its kooky, lovable and totally enchanting heroine. Tim Hogle plays Carroll Chatham, Mildred's best friend.
