After a hugely successful run in 2016, The Dukes is bringing back I Was a Wife in Spring 2017 before it tours nationally.
A goose, a witch and a fairy are just a few of the roles Polly Lister has played in her career, but when she eagerly signed a contract for the role of a lifetime, nothing could prepare her for the challenges that were to come…
Join Polly backstage in her dressing room for a personal journey through the comic highs and painful lows of the most difficult part she has ever played…a wife.
Will Polly find the courage to audition again?
This production blends songs with witty storytelling and high energy performance in an intimate exploration of love, loss and the search for answers.
“Brave, bold and beautiful… Polly Lister was right to receive a standing ovation for her play” – Lancaster Guardian
“Wow, wow, wow. Amazing writing and a bravura performance from Polly. She makes you laugh and breaks your heart. An unforgettable experience, an unforgettable evening and a well deserved standing ovation” – Audience Review
Polly Lister won the 2015 UK Theatre Award for Best Performance in a Play, for her role as Beverly in Theatre By The Lake’s production of Abigail’s Party.
