The Wife of Willesden

“The Wife of Willesden” is a riotous twenty-first century translation of “The Wife of Bath’s Prologue,” among the best-known of Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.

Adapted for the stage by first-time playwright Zadie Smith, The Guardian proclaims, “The Wife of Willesden is a celebration of community and local legends, of telling a good story and living a life worth telling.”

A proper local legend, Alvita will tell her life story to anyone in the local West London pub—there’s no shame in her game. The question is: are you ready to hear it? Because this woman’s got the gift of the gab: she can rewrite mistakes into triumphs, turn pain into parables. And her love life? It’s an epic poem.

What The Telegraph called “irresistibly rambunctious,” American Repertory Theater presents the  North American premiere of “The Wife of Willesden,” Feb. 25 – Mar. 18, 2023, at the Loeb Drama Center in Cambridge.
