The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead - Wikipedia
The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead is about a suburban housewife who has a momentary loss of control in a shopping mall with consequences that no one will soon forget. It combines the dramatic elements of surprise, disaster and humour with true-to-life characters and witty dialogue. This production is the North American premiere of The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead, and the first time any work of playwright Robert Hewett has been produced on a Stratford stage. Playwright Robert Hewett, from Melbourne, Australia wrote The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead after receiving an email complaining about the lack of work available for a mature actress. From the very different perspectives of these characters, who range from an elderly woman to a four-year-old boy, we uncover the story of Rhonda Russell, a suburban housewife whose momentary loss of control after her husband leaves home changes not only her own life but the lives of those around her.
