Theatre In The Square
The classic story of
a woman who retained her maiden name while married to a boring pedant and took perverse delight in subjugating that sex which took her sex for
granted. She plays her husband for a fool, and systematically destroys
first the manuscript and then the life of the man who once idolised her, before
she exercises her own right to coup de grace.
