A high energy, dark comedy by Debbie Issit, writer of the hugely popular feature film Nativity, comes to Blackburn Empire Theatre this spring.
Kenneth and Hilary have been married nearly twenty years, but as middle age approaches, Ken finds himself in the arms of another woman.
At first, Laura appears to be everything that is missing from Ken’s life with Hilary – young, slim, attractive and a vibrant free spirit – but his little fling quickly becomes desperately out of hand.
Juggling the affections of two women, his world becomes a tangle of lies and deceit. After his initial denials to Hilary’s increasing suspicions, he is soon forced to confront the truth and leaves Hilary for Laura.
Only one problem, Laura can’t cook. As time passes, Kenneth mourns the loss of Sunday roasts and haute cuisine, and the comforts of the settled life he once knew.
When Hilary invites Ken and Laura over for dinner, he readily accepts, unaware of what delicacies Hilary plans to serve. Told through a series of flashbacks interspersed with the `last supper’,
The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband is a highly entertaining exploration of the old adage, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”!
Laugh out loud, fun, fresh and moving. A highly entertaining and wry exploration of the old saying, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Can Kenneth have his cake and eat it?
