The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband
6 May, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Meredith Hunter, Perth family lawyer takes to the stage as Hilary the wronged wife in “THE WOMAN WHO COOKED HER HUSBAND” Harbour Theatre’s 2nd production for their 2016 season.
With two other highly talented actors, a local theatre company with a deserved reputation for excellence, and some tight direction. Add one mouth-watering script, an original and spicy take on the love triangle scenario, sprinkle liberally with tasty lighting and a delicious soundtrack. Mix in some pitch-black humour and serve with a generous helping of acerbic wit. And there you have it – the basic ingredients of Debbie Issit’s “THE WOMAN WHO COOKED HER HUSBAND”, the dish being served up at Harbour Theatre for 9 performances from 6th May 2016.
Directed by the award winning team of Peter Kirkwood and Nicola Bond this darkly funny adult comedy gives a highly entertaining exploration of jealousy, humiliation, deceit and betrayal. Long-time community theatre director Peter Kirkwood recently received the Best Director and Best Play awards at the annual Robert Finley presentation ceremony held at the State Theatre Centre for his outstanding production of Minefields and Miniskirts.
Kenneth (Jarrod Buttery) finds himself in the arms of Laura (Cordelia Clark) after 20 years of marriage to the culinary talented Hilary. The only trouble is, Laura can’t cook and soon Kenneth is mourning the loss of Sunday roasts, haute cuisine and the comforts of a settled life. When Hilary invites Kenneth and Laura over for dinner together, he readily accepts – unaware of what delicacies Hilary has on the menu!
The old adage “the way to man’s heart is through his stomach” takes on an entirely new meaning with this wickedly delicious black comedy.
The production contains adult themes and some coarse language.
