Mrs Bridge, an unremarkable and conservative housewife in Kansas City, has three children and a kindly lawyer husband. She spends her time with shopping, going to bridge parties and bringing up her children to be pleasant, clean and have nice manners.

Written as a series of short scenes that describe, in chronological order, the life of an upper middle class housewife in 1950's USA. Her life, seemingly devoid of any warmth at all, is sparsely observed throughout, is at times quite amusing and at others incredibly dull - a bit like her life I suppose.
