Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- The Twin Ports Stage, a Superior-based theater company, will take Northlanders back to the late 1960's through a Tupperware party gone entirely wrong.

The performance of "Sealed for Freshness" unravels over the course of an evening at a Tupperware party, giving a glimpse into what it was like for women in 1968, when being a perfect housewife was often seen as their "duty."

Actors say the subject matter of the play is at times highly comic and at others, extremely emotional.

"The relationships that these women have with each other play even today. Ya know, how women talk to each other, how they inter-relate, the relationships they have with the people in their lives and how they feel about their careers or where they are in their lives, and how, maybe, life doesn't always live up to their expectations," said actress Sharon Dixon Obst.

The play runs from September 4th-14th at the Manion Theater on the UW Superior campus.
