Mrs. Independent is already on track striking a nerve in both men and women, prompting lengthy social network threads on the topic “A woman married to her money”. This play will continue to spark conversation and debate over gender roles and control whether from a religious or person to person standpoint. Can a woman still be submissive to her husband and allow him to lead her household if she is the primary breadwinner? Trey, a mechanic, makes 40,000 a year and Carleena, a rising paralegal, makes 240,000 a year. With such a significant gap in their salaries Trey’s compatibilities are challenged making it impossible for him to satisfy his wife intellectually and intimately as this leads to a downward spiral in the marriage.
Mrs. Independent boasts an all-star cast featuring stage, television and film actress Robin Givens, R&B powerhouse singer and actor Christopher Williams, gospel recording songstress Shirley Murdock, R&B singer, writer and actor extraordinaire Tony Grant and actress Trisha Mann-Grant.
