The Jester's Wife (Off-Broadway, 36th Street Theater, 2023) | Playbill

The Jester's Wife



Stories of Dymphna, legendary medieval Irish Saint, recount her escape from her crazy wicked father accompanied by her Jester, and the Jester’s Wife. Spoiler alert: The Lives of the Saints tells us that the king pursues and beheads Dymphna “because she refused to consent to their brutish passion.” Yet none of these tales explain what became of the Jester and his Wife. Apparently, that couple survived to impart Dymphna’s legend, but no one has told their story. Until now.

Directed by T.J. Elliott

Cast Includes Steve Weatherbee, Emma Taylo Miller, Xander Jackson
