The World's Wife

The modern world we be seen through they eyes of the women behind some of history’s most famous men during a new show at the Lichfield Garrick.

Actress Linda Marlowe, under the direction of Di Sherlock, has adapted Poet Carol Ann Duffy’s 1999 collection, The World’s Wife, to see life through the eyes of everyone from Mrs Faust and Frau Freud to Queen Kong and Mrs Midas.

A spokesperson for the show said:

“Laced with dark humour and acerbic wit, this passionate exposé will enthral lovers of Carol Ann Duffy’s poems and newcomers alike.”

The World’s Wife will be at the Lichfield Garrick on September 17 at 8pm. Tickets start from £10 and can be booked at or by calling the box office on 01543 412121.
