The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband

A hilarious and gruesome picture of a deserted wife’s revenge on her unfaithful ex-husband.

Middlesbrough Theatre

8th March 2023 - 11th March 2023


Kenneth and Hilary have been married nearly 20 years, but as middle age approaches, Ken finds himself in them arms of another woman.

At first, Laura appears to be everything that is missing from Ken’s life with Hilary – young, 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. He is soon forced to confront the truth and leaves Hilary for Laura.

There’s only one problem … Laura can’t cook. As time passes, Kenneth mourns the loss of Sunday roasts and haute cuisine. Told through a series of flashbacks with the ‘last supper’, this play is a highly entertaining black comedy.

Tickets are £12/£11 and available from the Middlesbrough Theatre box-office in person, via telephone: 01642 81 51 81 or online.
