About World's Wife
Adapted from the poems of Carol Ann Duffy
Performed by Linda Marlowe
Directed by Di Sherlock
A new stage version of the acclaimed poems that imagine the wives' perspective of famous men through the ages.
From Mrs Faust and Frau Freud to Queen Kong and Mrs Midas, this delightful show slices through history and myth, whilst casting an astute glance over the modern world. Laced with dark humour and acerbic wit, this passionate exposé will enthral lovers of Duffy’s poems and newcomers alike.
Linda Marlowe has enjoyed great acclaim for her previous solo work including Berkoff’s Women, which toured internationally and played West End seasons.
'**** The combination of Marlowe’s consummate skill and Duffy's potent words deliver a rich and rollicking ride through the dark and dangerous aspects of womankind.' - The Scotsman
'Performed with awesome style and confidence… Joyfully refreshing. Do go and see this: it’s wonderful.' - The Observer
