Soldiers' Wives

APPROX RUNNING TIME: 65 minutes

Written by Sarah Daniels

Starring Catherine Shipton

Directed by Anthony Biggs

A funny, moving and gripping tale from one of TV’s finest and well known drama series actors in this explosive one woman show.

“A quietly assured tour de force.” – DAILY TELEGRAPH – 4 stars

‘I wouldn't put it like that, but yes I am married to someone whose job description includes being prepared to die'



Five wives living on an army base somewhere in England.
Five lives caught up in the humdrum tension of waiting for their
men to return whole and unharmed.
War does terrible things to people, leaves scars both visible
and invisible.
A front-line incident ricochets through their lives and each
woman is forced to confront hidden and painful truths.



Catherine Shipton is best known for creating the iconic and hugely popular role of Duffy 
in the BBC's award-winning drama Casualty

Sarah Daniels' plays have been performed at theatres including the Royal Court and 
the National Theatre. Soldiers Wives was originally broadcast on Woman's Hour on BBC Radio 4.



Anthony Biggs is Artistic Director for Jermyn Street Theatre, where he directs new work
and lesser known plays by classic authors. 

Part of the performance fee will be donated to HELP FOR HEROES
