THE STORY: As the critic of the Miami Times describes EVERYBODY'S GIRL and its central character: "Vivian Vance is the key to the plot. She plays a kookie 'widow' living in a town called Harmony, and her activities range from being mayor to running the local home for wayward girls. Due to the unlikely incident of a Japanese duck landing in her back yard, she comes into small recognition, and enough for a newspaper man to come out to do a story. When he finds out she has five sons in a prison camp in North Vietnam, he decides here is a chance for fame and a fast buck, and launches a campaign to have her named Mother of the Year. But this fine distinction is hilariously corrupted when it is revealed she was never, ever married." This bit of information comes as a shock to all, including her five strapping sons (who have been released from the prison camp for diplomatic reasons) and the White House (where she has been invited to receive Presidential recognition). But fortunately there is an explanation for it all, which removes any suggested blot on American motherhood and sets the stage for the rollicking climax of the play.

Successfully produced at Florida's Royal Poinciana Playhouse, this exuberant comedy has to do with a marvelously zany character who is nominated as "Mother of the Year" - until it is revealed that she has never bothered to attend to the trifling matter of marriage. But it's all respectable enough, as it turns out, and as funny as only the author of The Curious Savage and Everybody Loves Opal can make it. "Dialogue in the play crackles��The stage is full of action." - Miami (Fla.) Herald. "A bright new story angle, excellent casting and a homespun twist to humor give the play a refreshing flair that is likely to keep audiences rollicking for a long time." - Miami Times. "��contrived to make audiences laugh��" - WLIZ radio.
