The Wicker Husband archiveIn 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?

Book by Rhys Jennings. Music Darren Clark. Lyrics Darren Clark (based on an original short story by Ursula Wills-Jones).
