Thelma the playwright
26 December 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Write On, Thelma" finds Thelma engrossed in her script for drama teacher Mrs. Slicker (Jane Connell), who proudly announces that Thelma's play will be presented by the community theater, earning $250 as well. There are a number of changes instigated by the program director because of his messy divorce, but Thelma rolls with the punches. The reading of the script takes place at the Evans apartment, with Penny already in her Easter pageant costume as a tree, repeating her Mae West impression. JJ misreads one character as 'Madame La Foot!' Bookman's $8 an hour plumber (DeForest Covan) puts in his two cents worth, while 'Buffalo Butt' adds his impersonation of Louis Armstrong. An author of integrity, Thelma draws the line when she's required to drop the phrase 'black woman' to just 'woman,' willing to compromise but not surrender.
