An Ideal Wife

An Ideal Wife

What would you do if you had only 24 hours to find a wife? Best friends Lillian and Evelyn have made a pact to get married when they both turn 40. On the eve of her 40th birthday, Lillian has to find a wife in 24 hours to avoid marrying Evelyn, due to a secret she cannot share.


Written by Julia Smith and inspired by Oscar Wilde, this lesbian comedy of un/manners offers a carnivalesque plot filled with dark secrets, jubilant characters, and plenty of laughter. It is a celebration of friendship, love, life, and queer joy.
