Erma Bombeck: At Wit’s End at the Merrimack Repertory Theatre
January 19, 2022 - February 6, 2022
“Erma Bombeck: At Wit’s End” is a celebration of humorist Erma Bombeck that rejoices in the life of a woman considered to be one of America’s favorite moms; who championed the everyday lives of housewives with a daring truth few of her generation were willing to tell.
Born in 1927, Bombeck is ranked among the great humorists of the 1900s. She started her column in 1964, published her first book in 1976, and continued writing until just before her death in 1996. Her bestsellers include The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank; If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits?; Motherhood: The Second Oldest Profession; At Wit’s End; and Family – The Ties that Bind … and Gag! See this production live in 2022 from Jan. 19 to Feb. 6.
