A darkly comic exploration of contemporary love and marriage that explores what it is to be ‘man and wife’, The Woman Who Cooked her Husband serves up direct, frank and gruesome humor to a famished audience.

Hilary, a savvy and once loving housewife, faces the problem of her delinquent husband, Kenneth, who takes his dinner and clean clothes for granted. Seemingly trying to prove to himself that he still appeals to the opposite sex, he leaves his wife after nearly 20 years in favor of a new love. Sadly for Kenneth, his younger partner, Laura, can't cook to save her life. However, it is not her life that is in danger, as the philandering wretch finds himself caught between two women for whom 'hell hath no fury'.

In light of the recent White Paper, this piece wades into discussions on falling birth rates by asking us to consider the situation of the modern marriage which is at the heart of the family unit. A wonderfully morbid culinary experience…

With a theme that centres around culinary creativity, and in keeping with Skinned Knees’ exploration of non-traditonal theatre spaces, The Woman Who Cooked her Husband will be staged in a real kitchen- at Fine Palate café, where the audience will experience theatre with food pairing.

Advisory (Some sexual references and course language). Recommended for 16 and above.
