About the Play:

Dear Millie is a one-act comedy by Fred Carmichael. When people in our lives get a big head, it's our job as friends to bring them back down to earth and remind them who they are. That is the plan in this charming, comedic piece about true friendship.

Dear Millie is the title of a nationally syndicated Lonely Hearts column that Millie Tyson writes. She has a summer home in New England close to her three best friends. They have decided that Millie is getting a little too conceited in her advice-giving and have devised a plot wherein they will confide in her that each of their husbands is secretly seeing their best friends. Millie is no one's fool and artfully turns the tables on them before her secretary brings about another surprise. The sixth character is a country maid who has problems of her own. The dialogue is bright and witty, and the plot full of surprises.

Dear Millie has become a popular choice for community theatre productions.

Cast: 6 female

What people say:

"Dear Millie delivers laughs, sound advice... This show is light-hearted and funny with smart dialogue ... As in all good comedies, others unknowingly get caught up in the drama." — Etobicoke Guardian

About the Playwright:

Fred Carmichael (1924-2009) was an American playwright and actor. After years of touring and summer stock theatre, he and his director wife decided to have their own theatre and moved to Dorset, Vermont in 1949 and began a long running relationship with the Dorset Players until 1976, producing a full season of summer theatre. From the early 1950s through the mid-1990s, he wrote over 50 comedies and murder-mystery comedies many of which premiered at the Dorset Playhouse. It was once said about his plays that "Fred Carmichael is a deft plotter – crucial to the mystery form – but his light touch turns standard whodunits into comedic soufflés."
