CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.

A series of dramatic monologues taken from Carol Ann Duffy's much-loved book of poems. Taking a wry look at the lives and loves of the wives of historical figures, this humorous event gives a voice to unknowns such as Mrs Pilate, Mrs Darwin and Frau Freud. This new adaptation of Carol Ann Duffy's poems, imagines the wives' perspective of famous men. From Mrs Faust and Frau Freud to Queen Kong and Mrs Midas, this darkly funny show slices through history and myth, whilst also casting an astute glance over the modern world. Laced with dark humour and acerbic wit, this passionate expose will enthral lovers of Duffy's poems and newcomers alike. Age guidance 14+. Running time: 70 mins without interval.

Performers Linda Marlowe.
Presented by James Seabright. Presented by LMP.
