A stiletto sharp satire of domestic bliss.

A story about sex, love, murder and marriage. Could there be a more lethal cocktail? Based on Kathy Lette’s hit novel, How to Kill your Husband (and other handy household hints) is the story of two friends, a domestic goddess and a juggling working mum, each wanting more from their marriages and from their lives. They’re after fulfilment, and a little revenge, is that too much to ask for? Enjoy a night of high drama and cheeky intimacy at this uniquely Australian cabaret opera.
