The Wife of Willesden (Paperback)

£5.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

'Married five times. Mother. Lover. Aunt. Friend.

She plays many roles round here. And never

Scared to tell the whole of her truth, whether

Or not anyone wants to hear it. Wife

Of Willesden: pissed enough to tell her life

Story to whoever has ears and eyes . . .'



Zadie Smith's first time writing for the stage, The Wife of Willesden is a riotous twenty-first century translation of Geoffrey Chaucer's classic The Wife of Bath's Prologue, brought to glorious life on the Kilburn High Road.



Commissioned to celebrate Brent's year as Borough of Culture 2020, The Wife of Willesden will premiere at the Kiln Theatre, London in September 2020.
