The Housewives of the 1950s by Nadia Papachronopoulou

The Housewives of the 1950s Written, and directed by Nadia Papachronopoulou is a fusing comedy and Live music Housewives of the 1950s explores the contradictions and clichés of the woman’s role in 1950s British Life and Where women know their place!

Nadia Papachronopoulou developed Housewives of the 1950s with workshops and then devised with the very talented all female cast.

In early 2009, The Hen and Chickens Theatre, Islington staged Deborah Levy’s Honey, Baby. This was the debut of Papachronopoulou, a radical, uncompromising and alluring director. This was a runaway success having sell out performances, which gives great promise for her new adventure.

The play takes place in the 1950s. A television programme is trying to find the perfect housewife that fits into the ideal that women were meant to stay at home. In a world where materialism started, and where racism and sexism was the norm. Were the women happy..?

In an unusual move, The White Bear has invited Papachronopoulou to stage her show for two weeks rather than the standard three-week run.
