This stage biography of gifted short-story writer Katherine Mansfield is set in the tuberculosis sanitarium where she went with her devoted companion, Ida Baker, to regain her health over the winter of 1920-21. The play focuses on the relationship between these two ladies and on this important literary figure’s sensibilities as a writer and a woman, while revealing harsh truths about her marriage to a writer and critic who treated her with selfish insensitivity.

REVIEWS

"An excellent play." - London Sunday Telegraph

"Most biographical dramas make one wish one had stayed home and read the book, but not this one." - London Daily Telegraph

"Elegant [...] exquisite [...] a compelling study of feverish genius forced to admit dependence on someone who will never pronounce Avignon correctly." - London Times


The Winter Wife premiered at the Nuffield Theatre in Southampton, UK in February 1991 under the direction of Patrick Sandford.
