Wife

Behind every great man…

Mrs Icarus, Queen Herod, Eleanor Roosevelt, Mrs Quasimodo…

A new one-woman play about wives through history, art and legend, and how they are obscured. Formed around the poems from The World’s Wife by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, Wife connects female experience throughout time, mythology and the world. Part poetry, part verbatim, part monologue, this is a personal and universal exploration of how women have been masked by their men.

‘I desire you would Remember the Ladies, and be more generous and favourable to them than your ancestors.’ – Abigail Adams, former First Lady, 1776.
