The Wife, The Mistress, The Chair (theatre)

The Wife, The Mistress, The Chair
Did you see The Green Room ProductionsLittle Gem in November? If not, you did miss a treat! The heart-warming play of three generations of Dublin women showed how family relationships can be strengthened by adversity. 

Now two of Little Gem's stars, Sandra Cheesman and Holly Lindfield, are returning to The Little Theatre with the premiere of a brand new play which is quite the opposite. The Wife, The Mistress, The Chair depicts the aftermath of an extramarital affair, exploring themes of infidelity and revenge. 

Sandra says "It is a story that has been swilling around the old grey matter since 2009 due to conversations our first play, 'The Collector', stimulated. I started writing my own experiences and those of my friends regarding infidelity, and it spiraled from there. Suddenly people were inadvertently telling me stories and I started doing some research on the internet and the play took shape. I started writing it almost a year ago to the day - it has changed a LOT since that first draft!"

Humiliation, pain, anger, suffering, being scared, feeling cornered, having someone else be in control of your life, being unsure of what your future holds .... all the emotions that dominate her every waking moment, since she found out.

Humiliation, pain, anger, suffering, being scared, feeling cornered, having someone else be in control of your life, being unsure of what your future holds .... now it’s time for the ‘other her’ to experience the same.

I have been told that The Wife, The Mistress, The Chair is suitable for audiences aged 14 and over.

The Little Theatre, Thu 18th - Sat 20th Apr, 19:30.
Tickets £11 (concessions £10), available online through TicketSource.
