After 51 years of marriage, Edna travels to Indonesia to see coral reefs, jungles and tigers and comes home with an important souvenir – herself.
Previously, this play was called, Coming of Age.
7 minute comedy

After 51 years married to a pushy, bombastic, know-it-all husband, Edna broke free. For the first time in her life, she went on vacation by herself. And not just any vacation. She went to Indonesia to experience first-hand the jungles, coral reefs, rice fields, and an outdoor bathroom “with a view.” She discovers that people are interested in what she has to say, and not just when she’s bargaining in a market. Now, back in the airport back in the US, she realizes that while it was surprisingly simple to leave home, the decision to return is complicated.
This play is set in 1995. The playwright states, “The play speaks to women who love their husbands and families. Women who didn’t grow up with this kind of loyalty to tradition may see this as dated. But if we write everything through the eyes of a younger generation, we lose hindsight. And hindsight is the greatest teacher of all.”
