Episode Summary


Mrs. Stone belongs to a play group putting on the play "A Doll's House" by Henrik Ibsen. She has the lead role, Nora Helmer, and isn't doing well. Mrs. Stone is relying upon a director who, based upon her past performances of the role. feels she should be Nora and not Mrs. Stone. Thus while saying she is helping Mrs. Stone, she isn't helping as much as if she was happy being the director.

Meanwhile their Sons are having their own private discussions about their Mothers and the play. This lands Jeff both with two black eyes and in hot water with his Mother that is until Mrs. Stone learns what Jeff won't tell her.

Tune in and find out how Mrs. Stone deals not only with her own issues, but helps her Son take another step towards being a young man (of the 1950's).
