'The Wife'

Hilarious, provocative, and tender this Commedia dell'Arte digs deeply into the nature of love and marriage.

Based loosely on a Chaucer tale, the play is aimed at adults and is bawdy in the places and essentially for grown ups.

Bring warm clothes and a low backed chair, the site is open from 6pm for picnics.
