Clare Perkins is sitting on the bar in a pub, legs crossed, a drink in her hand and her head thrown back in laughter. The image is dappled with golden light reflections. Beside her, in an olde-worlde font, are the words, The Wife of Willesden.

The Wife of Willesden

Audio described by VocalEyes.

Adapted by Zadie Smith From Chaucer’s The Wife of Bath.

A proper local legend, Alvita (Clare Perkins) will tell her life story to anyone in the pub – there’s no shame in her game. The question is: are you ready to hear it? Director Indhu Rubasingham invites
you to take your seat at the bar, order a pint or two, and listen to this bawdy, beautiful new comedy up close and very, very personal.
