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.
