"Hallelujah! Just when I think it's unsafe to go back in a theatre, a gem like this appears on the scene. Go see this company. And bring all your friends."

The World's Wife
By Carol Ann Duffy
Directed by David Horan
Performed by Iseult Golden and Carmel Stephens


Based on a collection by Whitbread Award Winning poet, Carol Ann Duffy, THE WORLD'S WIFE is a witty, flamboyant, irreverent and terribly well dressed look at the secret lives of the great wives.

Ever wonder what went on in Mrs Freud's unconscious? What Mrs Devil thought of her fallen angel? And can you even begin to imagine a Queen Kong?

With two actors playing all twelve wives, the play brings these forgotten women to life in an hour-long dramatisation that will tickle, terrify and seduce any audience!

"...it's gloriously wicked as well as being impressively talented in presentation and concept...We meet the forgotten wives of the great, the good, the flawed and the ugly: from Frau Freud to Orpheus's lost love Eurydice, from Mme Quasimodo to Mrs Faust. They suffer, they poke fun, they denigrate, they take revenge. Sometimes they love...David Horan directs a cast of two, Carmel Stephens and Iseult Golden. Melanie Rodgers designs, and lighting is by Sinead McKenna. And all are nothing less than a delight". Emer O'Kelly, The Sunday Independent



"Brace yourself! This is an unadulterated, unapologetic, and unabashed rave review,
a virtual, veritable gushfest. Where to begin?" WOW
