THE WORLD'S WIFE
by Carol Ann Duffy
directed by Di Sherlock
As broadcast on The Culture Show August 2009
|Adaptation of Carol Ann Duffy’s poems, imagining 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.
'Marlowe delivers the poems with tremendous verve and grace … a remarkable solo performance'
'Witty, fleet-footed production … Marlowe lets rip with her trademark searing energy and grace… not to be missed'
'Marlowe reigns supreme, like a mythical shape-shifter, she flits from one swift portrayal to another… speaks volumes about the popular appeal of Duffy's work, but also about the genius of the show's performer.'
