A Woman Killed with Kindness

By Thomas Heywood

touring with Henry V Spring 2003

Frankford, a country gentleman, is husband to Anne, a ‘perfect wife’. Their happily married life is thrown into disarray when he discovers Anne in the arms of another man. Banished to a life of luxury, but prohibited from seeing him or their children again, Anne pays the ultimate price in her remorse.

“Hankies are a necessary accessory for audience members….Every inch the ruddy-faced country gentleman, (Richard) Standing gives a finely-judged performance , sweeping us up in his happiness then plunging us in his despair.”
Lynda Murdin – Yorkshire Post ****

“Maeve Larkin (A Woman Killed With Kindness) is a most touching – in truth, a tear-prompting – penitent”
