First look rehearsal images have been released for Samuel Adamson’s Wife at Kiln Theatre. Indhu Rubasingham directs Richard Cant (Peter/Ivar at 58/Landlord), Karen Fishwick (Daisy/Clare), Pamela Hardman (Character Actress /Marjorie/Embassy Assistant), Joshua James (Robert/Finn/Ivar at 28), Calam Lynch (Eric/Cas) and Sirine Saba (Suzannah).

‘Nora slammed the door on a broken, obsolete system for us, and now a hundred years later we have this free, independent union.’

Across four time periods, four couples intersect with a production of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House. When it comes to identity, gender and unrequited love, how do societal expectations and pressures change over time? Samuel Adamson maps a constellation of four queer stories within four generations in one family.

Wife opens on 4 June, with previews from 30 May, and runs until 6 July, coinciding with London’s Pride parade.
