Rehearsal images have been released for Indhu Rubasingham’s production. Here’s a glimpse of what has been happening…
Directed by Kiln Theatre’s Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham, Samuel Adamson’s play uses Ibsen’s play A Doll’s House as the basis for his play Wife to explore the institution of marriage from 1959 over the course of ninety years and its impact on those branded ‘wife’.
It’s 1959. Daisy is at a crossroads. Married to Robert but in love with Suzannah, her moral compass tells her to go one way, society the other. What she chooses to do next will have consequences for generations to come.
Samuel Adamson’s latest play follows on from his work on The Light Princess at the National Theatre and All About My Mother at the Old Vic.
The cast for the production includes: Sirine Saba, Richard Cant, Calam Lynch, Karen Fishwick, Joshua James and Pamela Harman.
Meanwhile, the creative team for the production includes: designs by Richard Kent, lighting design by Guy Hoare, sound design by Alex Caplen, and music by David Shrubsole.
Wife plays at the Kiln Theatre from the 30th May until the 6th July.
