Synopsis: In this comedy by the authors of Something's Afoot, Jackie Kennedy is very nervous on an afternoon in January, 1962. She has completed the restoration of the White House and has invited Eleanor, Bess, Mamie, Pat and Lady Bird to give their opinions. And do they ever! They criticize the way she runs the White House and take her to task for being uninvolved politically. When Mrs. Roosevelt commands her to head the crusade for women's rights, a hilarious political hurricane ensues. Each discovers something about herself, her relationship with her husband, and how touching and funny it can be to hold the highest non paying job in the U.S.A.
