The Wife of Willesden


Time Out says

The English novelist and essayist Zadie Smith (White Teeth) makes her playwriting debut with a modern version of the lusty Wife of Bath section of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, with the much-married storyteller reimagined as a fiftysomething Jamaican-English woman taking command of the open mic at a pub in North West London. Clare Perkins has the central role in a production, directed by Indhu Rubasingham, that premiered at London's Kiln Theatre in 2021.
