Lent Week 3
1959. Daisy begins the play revolting against her priggish husband Robert. She is in love with Suzannah- an actress who plays the part of the defiant and liberated Nora in A Dolls House. Torn between society and her desires, the personal life decision Daisy makes will have consequences for four couples over the next 90 years.
This brilliant piece of new writing travels from 1959 to 2042, telling the story of our shifting relationships to love, identity and theatre. Wife asks how we may interact with our past, how we may connect in the present and how we may find independence.
Wife celebrates what we have now and the hope found in shared stories.
First performed at the Kiln Theatre in 2019…
“A rousing look at 60 years of sexual identity… Alive, and endlessly curious"
"Exuberant eccentricity and crackerjack intelligence. A play for today. And yesterday. And tomorrow."
