I Lost My Husband
I LOST MY HUSBAND
By Catherine Léger
Translated by Leanna Brodie
Directed by Diane Brown
Produced by Ruby Slippers Theatre in association with Gateway Theatre
She lost her husband in a bar bet … she’s not sure she wants him back. A hilarious romantic comedy.
March 15 - 24, 2018 • StudioB
Evelyn loses her husband in a bar bet. The thing is, she's not entirely sure she wants him back. A smart, feisty, subversive comedy about the important things in life: love, freedom, karaoke ... and never letting frozen yogurt stand in the way of your dreams.
Catherine Léger’s comedy J’ai perdu mon mari was a hit in Quebec and Ruby Slippers Theatre commissioned this English language translation from Leanna Brodie to present the World Premiere of I Lost My Husband.
I Lost My Husband is our third partnership with leading Vancouver company Ruby Slippers Theatre. They previously produced The List in 2016 and You Will Remember Me in 2017. Diane Brown returns to direct this wickedly funny play about an aging party girl and her dreams of independence.
"Behind its eccentric premise, and the great bursts of laughter that it provokes, lies a script that tackles some of the big, super-current issues in an original way." – Jeu Magazine
