Jacklyn Backhaus’ new comedy Wives will open Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons after beginning performances August 23. The play, which looks at the wives of Great Men throughout the ages, is scheduled to play through October 6.

Directed by Margot Bordelon, Wives stars Purva Bedi (Dance Nation, India Pale Ale), Mahira Kakkar (Miss Witherspoon, The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui), Sathya Sridharan (India Pale Ale, Two Mile Hollow), and Adina Verson (Indecent, Collective Rage: A Play in 5 Betties).

The new play traverses time and place, from the brawny castles of 16th-century France, to the rugged plains of 1960s Idaho, to the strapping fortresses of 1920s India. In each setting, we’re introduced to the wives and paramours of Great Men—including King Henry II and Maharaja Madho Singh II—and shown what happens once the crushing weight of their greatness has been lifted.
