About the Show

A raucous multimedia theatre work, this new piece tracks two men's obsessions with intimacy, queerness, and the deep desire to see and be seen.

Interesting, Uneven, Niche, Fluffy

See it if you are a fan and know Real Housewives fan. Fun if you do. Interesting 90's retro use of video.

Don't see it if you don't watch any Real Housewives franchise. No point seeing this if you don't. Read more

"Though overall an excruciating experience, thanks to its accomplished multimedia presentation 'This American Wife' is bearable and its 80-minutes pass briskly...It’s intended to be hilarious but isn’t as its performers simply aren’t funny and are devoid of charm...Breslin and Foley’s shtick might have made for some amusing YouTube videos but as a full-length stage piece 'This American Wife' is so encrusted with smarmy pretentiousness as to render it as masturbatory tedium."

“Incredibly funny and uncomfortable...I laughed, I cringed, and admired the creativity of Foley and Breslin. This show is everything you would not expect from a play based on ‘The Real Housewives’ because it is way more thoughtful. It is not trying to be gimmicky as much as genuinely funny and open to analysis. Yet, if you have never watched ‘The Real Housewives’ or do not know too much about the series ‘This American Wife’ might fall flat to you."
