A stiletto sharp satire of domestic bliss.

A story of sex, love, murder, and marriage - could there be a more lethal cocktail? Based on Kathy Lette's hit novel, How to Kill your Husband (and other handy household hints), is the story of two friends: a domestic goddess and a juggling working mum, each wanting more from their marriages and from their lives. They’re after fulfilment, and a little revenge, is that too much to ask? Enjoy a night of high drama and cheeky intimacy at this uniquely Australian cabaret opera.

An opera based on the book by Kathy Lette
Adapted for the stage by Timothy Daly
Music by Alan John
