In this wild sex farce, Vanessa's marriage to Cooper has grown stale. She wants excitement and passion. He merely wants to provide for her the best way he knows how: fishing. While Cooper is out at sea, Vanessa receives a visit from a mysterious traveling salesman with a bag full of danger. And he's not the only one new in town: a ravenously horny giant squid and octopus have settled in under the dock, ready for whomever comes their way. 
“As a riff on Hokusai’s famed erotic woodcut ‘The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife’ - the defi nitive work in tentacle porn - Yockey’s ‘Wife’ is funny, transgressive and fantastical.” – San Francisco Chronicle, Read More

The Fisherman’s Wife is boundary-pushing yet accessible, oversized but intimate, and always fun.” – SF Weekly, Read More
Premered at the Impact Theatre in Berkeley, California in September of 2012, under the direction of Ben Randal.

CHORUS SIZE

N/A (Not a musical)

COOPER MINNOW - a man, a young husband, a fisherman, doing his best to satisfy his wife’s needs, frustrated and pent up; he grew up near the water.

VANESSA MINNOW - a woman, a young wife, dissatisfied in her marriage that’s not what she expected, frustrated and pent up; she often longs for more.

THOMAS BELL -  a man, a door‐to‐door salesman, the kind of person who has seen a lot of things and often has just what you need on hand – for the right price.

SQUID - a “woman,” very attractive, lithe, a manifestation of a tentacled sea creature, nurturing and seductive, but also bossy; kind of a sexual deviant.

OCTOPUS - a “man,” very attractive, lithe, a manifestation of a tentacled sea creature, an older brother, sassy, sarcastic; kind of a sexual deviant.
