Katherine Parkinson of The IT Crowd, Humans and The Honourable Woman reprises her leading role as the perfect 50s housewife, Judy, in Laura Wade’s (Posh) new play. The sharp new play transfers to London’s West End following a sell-out run at the National Theatre. Laura Wade’s cutting new comedy shines a light on one woman’s desire to be a cookie cutter housewife.
Everything looks picture perfect- the dress, the apron, the appliances, the decor, the wife, the husband. But how far do appearances go? While a bit of fantasy helps keep a marriage alive it can only go so far once things start to get real. It turns out being a domestic goddess isn’t necessarily as easy as Judy thinks.
Laura Wade’s cutting new comedy comes to the London stage for a strictly limited 11-week run from 26 January to 13 April. Do not miss your chance to see comedy genius Katherine Parkinson in her critically acclaimed role as Judy alongside Richard Harrington as her husband Johnny.
