A riotous dramatic translation of Geoffrey Chaucer's The Wife of Bath's Prologue, brought to glorious life on London's Kilburn High Road

'Married five times. Mother. Lover. Aunt. Friend. She plays many roles round here. And never Scared to tell the whole of her truth, whether Or not anyone wants to hear it. Wife Of Willesden: pissed enough to tell her lifeStory to whoever has ears and eyes...'

Zadie Smith's first play is a joyous re-imagining of Chaucer's classic, The Wife of Bath's Tale. As the crowd in a small pub on the Kilburn High Road stand up to share their stories, the Wife of Willesden is not afraid to bare it all...
