Tupperware: An American Musical Fable
Tupperware promises to keep audiences tapping their toes and singing along to new music while offering an insight into how a now-ubiquitous product revolutionized the lives of American housewives.
Tupperware tells the story of Delores Clarke, a young widow living in Kissimmee, FL, in 1950, her struggle to fit into the traditional mold of the All-American housewife, and how a revolutionary new kitchen product (and equally revolutionary new marketing system) ended up breaking the mold altogether. As she and Brownie Wise, inventor of the Tupperware Party, begin selling a few hours of independence to local women in the form of Tupperware, they tackle social norms, small-town politics, and a woman's right to pursue her own entrepreneurial enterprise, changing the face of the American dinner table forever.
