How to Train Your Husband

Written by

This madcap comedy addresses an issue close to every woman's heart –how to train your husband!

Sound impossible? Not when you have a legendary Husband Trainer living right next door.

The play follows the adventures of three generations of the Smith family as they attempt to turn their men into fully trained members of the opposite sex.

Nothing quite goes according to plan and the result is a hilarious comedy with plenty of unexpected twists and turns.
