No family photograph can truly prepare Rowena for her first meeting with Maurice's three wives and teenage son. Young, nervous and extremely pregnant, she is warmly welcomed into the fold but her presence soon has the family questioning the nature of their delicate balance. Then Fay brings home a one-night stand, with far-reaching consequences for them all.
Set in an ordinary house in a tree-lined street in Lewisham, Matt Charman's new play takes a provocative look at married life, and the alternatives.
The Five Wives of Maurice Pinder premiered at the National Theatre, London, in June 2007.
