WIVES Written by Jaclyn Backhaus Directed by Margot Bordelon

From the brawny castles of 16th Century France, to the rugged plains of 1960s Idaho, to the strapping fortresses of 1920s India, all hail the remarkable stories of Great Men! — and their whiny, witchy, vapid, vengeful, jealous wives. In this kaleidoscopic, time-hopping comedy, Jaclyn Backhaus pushes past patriarchal cliché to reach an ecstatic breakthrough, untethering stories and history — and language itself — from the visions made by men.

Jaclyn Backhaus’ feverish, feminist comedy is performed with enjoyable brio by the cast. —Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Winking and exuberant! Jaclyn Backhaus’ Wives is a swift and playful feminist manifesto. —Sara Holdren, New York Magazine
