The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband. Tour 2018

The old adage that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach will be tested to its limits. Building on the successes of their previous shows, April In Paris and September in the Rain, Manchester's Little Diamond Theatre Company return with the wickedly funny dark comedy The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband.Scripted by Debbie Issit, writer of the hugely popular feature film Nativity, the story finds middle aged Ken in a tryst with young, slim, attractive and a vibrant free spirit Laura - which would be perfect were it not for the fact she lacks the culnary skills of his wife Hilary.

As time passes, Kenneth mourns the loss of Sunday roasts , leading him to readily accept an invite from Hilary for a last supper, unaware of what delicacies she plans to serve. - North Wales Pioneer Press Release.

A John Godber comedy classic. Journey with Al & Bet to Paris on their first trip abroad, and watch them navigating their way around the famous sights, with aching feet, confusing maps and a not very useful phrasebook.
