Exceptional actresses bring Carol Ann Duffy's slim volume of poetry to life in this sparkling piece of contemporary theatre. The 'other halves' of famous men from history, literature, fable and myth take the stage with amazing tales to tell. Mrs Rip van Winkle, Queen Kong, Frau Freud, Mrs Quasimodo, Anne Hathaway, Medusa…with salty wit, damning truth and luminous beauty they tell it how it is and always was. Their stories are the stuff of which fairy tales, tabloid headlines and legends are made. This is intimate theatre of epic proportions.
