Behind any great man, there’s always a greater woman… and you’re about to meet her.

It is crucial you get to know this woman – many of us already do and don’t even realise it. Joan Castleman (Glenn Close): a still-striking beauty with impeccable credentials, the perfect alpha wife. Forty years spent sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions to fan the flames of her charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his skyrocketing literary career. Ignoring his infidelities and excuses because of his “art” with grace and humour.

Their fateful pact has built a marriage upon uneven compromises. And Joan’s reached her breaking point. On the eve of Joe’s Nobel Prize for Literature, the crown jewel in a spectacular body of work, Joan’s coup de grâce is to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and secret of his career.

She’s written every word.

The Wife is a poignant, funny and emotional journey; a celebration of womanhood, self-discovery and liberation.
