Bored with their everyday lives and kept in insignificance by their boyfriends/husbands, these are four angry women. They try a number of outlets, but nothing suits until one of them strikes a chord on her guitar and suggests that they form a punk rock group to enter the upcoming talent show at the neighborhood punk club? Their group “The Angry Housewives,” enter and win. This genial satire of contemporary feminism ran for ages in Seattle and has had numerous successful productions across the country.
