About the Show Less...

Adaptation of the poetry collection of Carol Ann Duffy. Read More >

The World’s Wife is a new stage version of Duffy’s acclaimed poems, which imagine the perspectives of the wives of famous men through the ages, whilst casting an acute glance over the modern world. Subversive, inventive and very funny, the verse cuts through boundaries between factual and fictional women to get under the skin of the women ‘behind’ great men, from Mrs. Faust and Frau Freud to Queen Kong and Mrs. Midas.
