The Baker's Wife
Tuesday 28th September to Saturday 2nd October 2010
Green Room


Having been without bread for seven weeks, the villagers are deliriously joyful when their new baker Aimable Castagnet arrives with his new, young wife Genevieve and cooks up his first batch of fresh warm bread.

Everything seems delicious again...that is until the young, strapping local handyman Dominique seduces Genevieve away from her older husband and runs away with her.

Aimable crumbles - and so do his bread making abilities! And as the heat wears off in a hotel room between Genevieve and Dominique, she begins to long for her old home by the oven and her steady and lovingly warm husband...and the villagers wonder if they’ll ever be fed again.
