On a moonlit road in Hampstead, Walter Hartright is accosted by a woman dressed from head to toe in white. She asks the way to London and no sooner has Walter directed her than he is overtaken by a carriage in pursuit of the mysterious woman, who has evidently escaped from an asylum. From this single incident, Walter unwinds a thrilling story of abduction, madness, false identity and shameful family secrets. Pursuing questions of identity and insanity along the paths and corridors of English country houses and asylums for the insane, Nicola Boyce’s adaptation of THE WOMAN IN WHITE captures both the Gothic horror and psychological realism of one of the most popular detective stories ever written.

Short
Synopsis

Kenneth and Hilary have been married nearly twenty years, but as middle age approaches, Ken finds himself in the arms of another woman. At first, Laura appears to be everything that is missing from Ken’s life with Hilary - young, slim, attractive and a vibrant free spirit - but his little fling quickly becomes desperately out of hand. Juggling the affections of two women, his world becomes a tangle of lies and deceit. After his initial denials to Hilary’s increasing suspicions, he is soon forced to confront the truth and leaves Hilary for Laura. Only one problem... Laura can’t cook. As time passes, Kenneth mourns the loss of Sunday roasts and haute cuisine, and the comforts of the settled life he once knew. When Hilary invites Ken and Laura over for dinner, he readily accepts, unaware of what delicacies Hilary plans to serve.

Told through a series of flashbacks interspersed with the `last supper’, THE WOMAN WHO COOKED HER HUSBAND is a highly entertaining exploration of the old adage, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”!
