The Wicker Husband
Information for The Wicker Husband at The Watermill Theatre, Newbury (Musical). In a superficial world, where beauty is only skin-deep, meet the so-called 'Ugly Girl'. Ostracised by the shallow townsfolk because she doesn't fit in, the Ugly Girl becomes the envy of her neighbours when the mysterious Old Basketmaker makes her a strong and loving husband woven from living wicker. As bitter rivalry and jealousy threaten to tear the community apart, the townsfolk embark on a cruel and destructive plan. Will the Ugly Girl's happiness be ruined forever?
