Duffy's look at the world and his wives

Tomorrow night at the Weston Studio Theatre in the Wales Millennium Centre you can take a fresh female persepctive on the lives of the great men.

A new stage version from poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy's (who's achieved so many firsts in that post it's hard to list them all) acclaimed poems that see history through the eyes of wive's of the mighty men of myth and history.

From Mrs Faust and Frau Freud to Queen Kong and Mrs Midas Marlowe's performance also casts an astute glance over the modern world. Laced with dark humour and acerbic wit, this passionate expose will enthral lovers of Duffy’s poems and newcomers alike.

Linda Marlowe has enjoyed great acclaim for her previous solo work including Berkoff’s Women, which toured internationally and played the West End seasons. In this new show, her virtuoso performance of Duffy’s brilliant and often controversial verse is interspersed with commentary about the poems.
