The Wife of Cyncoed

By Matt Hartley

Ebook £7.99£6.39

Jayne is newly retired and disappointed with her life. She's in danger of becoming her daughter's babysitting service, and is desperate to make a change. When she meets a handsome stranger in the park – and an opportunity to do something for herself arises – can Jayne allow herself a second chance at happiness?

Matt Hartley's play The Wife of Cyncoed is a charming and open-hearted play about self-discovery later in life. It premiered at Sherman Theatre, Cardiff, in 2024, and provides gloriously entertaining opportunities for a mature solo performer.

The Wife of Cyncoed is also available in the volume The Wife of Cyncoed & Idyll: Two Plays.

'Ah, isn't it so sweet, I bet they say. I tell you what, girls, there's times when there is nothing sweet about what we get up to, oh no. We are animals.'

Press Quotes

'Scorching... a rare gem that provokes, moves and titillates... strikingly observant and well written... a fun, deeply sensual tale of dormant desire finally freed... refreshingly raunchy'

The Stage

'A tour de force that manages to be both entertaining and poignant'
