Now showing - 50s satire Recipe For A Perfect Wife

Written and produced by theatre producer and psychic to the stars Christina McCulloch, Recipe for a Perfect Wife is a new Fifties-themed comedy stage show, in which five ladies compete to become Britain’s best housewife on live television. Hosted by TV husband and wife duo, Betty and Bertie and the singing trio ‘Kitty and Her Cats’, no stone is left unturned as the contestants fight it out to be the most beautiful, obedient cake-baking spouses the world has ever seen…

With a wonderful Fifties sing-along soundtrack and unique vintage costumes, the quirky show has a definite feel good factor and in these times of austerity, provides pure, escapist entertainment for everybody.

Re-opening on Thursday 22 September 2011 until the end of the year, the show will play every Wednesday and Thursday nights at 10pm at the Charing Cross Theatre in Villiers Street.

On each evening, there is a post-show Fifties-themed party in the theatre bar, with free cake and dancing until late. And with its unique, fun and interactive script, the show specialises in group bookings and incorporating special occasions like birthday parties, hen dos and Christmas parties in to the storyline in a ‘famous for 5 minutes’ slot.
