Islington celebrity psychic’s play hits West End
A musical that was written, directed, produced by and stars people from Islington has started a run in the West End.
Recipe for a Perfect Wife, which started life at the Kings Head Theatre in Upper Street, is now being staged at the Charing Cross Theatre every Wednesday until Christmas.
The play tells the story of downtrodden 1950s housewives struggling against male chauvinism and competing in game show called Britain’s Best Housewife.
Christina McCulloch, who lives in Lorraine Street, Holloway, and wrote and produced the show, said: “It’s such an Islington production. The director is from Islington, one of the cast is from Islington and most of the crew are as well.
“It’s been fantastic, it’s such a lovely theatre and it’s a great experience.”
