With Bronagh Gallagher, Susan Lynch and Special Guests

In conjunction with the visit to HomePlace by Carol Ann Duffy, we are delighted to present this staged reading of arguably her most famous collection of poetry.

Behind every famous man is a great woman, and from the quick-tongued Mrs Darwin to the lascivious Frau Freud, from the adoring Queen Kong to the long-suffering wife of the Devil himself, each one steps from her counterpart’s shadow to tell her side of the story in this irresistible collection.

Original, subversive, full of imagination and quicksilver wit, The World’s Wife is Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy at her beguiling best.

A selection of poems from The World’s Wife will be read by two of Ireland’s best actors – Bronagh Gallagher and Susan Lynch – and original commisioned music will be performed by Ursula Burns, in what promises to be an unmissable evening celebrating the untold stories behind the greatest fairy tales, myths and legends.
