Merrimack Repertory Theatre (MRT) will present Audrey Cefaly’s Maytag Virgin, a sweet, Southern romance about starting over again, from Jan. 8 to Feb. 2 at the Nancy L. Donahue Theatre at Liberty Hall, according to Executive Director Bonnie J. Butkas and Interim Artistic Director Terry Berliner. Eleanor Holdridge directs.

When unflappable Jack moves in next door to sweetly neurotic Lizzie – two 40-something school teachers, both widowed — the two bond over being lonely and feeling stuck. As they get to know each other, they find themselves searching for an answer to the same question: how do you know when you’re ready to live, and love, again?
