An original puppet theater piece that investigates the core themes of waiting, mourning, and healing. These themes are explored through the lens of contemporary US and UK military wives' stories and mytho-historic heroines: Penelope from Homer's Odyssey, Mandodari from the Ramayana, and Scheherazade from The Arabian Nights. The production is inspired by the stories of 21st Century women whose lives have been affected by war. It draws from personal accounts, news and radio stories as well as online social media.

Three Good Wives is a collaborative project developed the performers. Puppet and scenic design by Michael Kelly, sound design by Joemca, and direction by Alissa Mello.

There will be a post-show Q&A with the director on Wed 24 March.
"This production should be seen by all who love theater, science and peace."
- Larry Litt, NY Theatre Wire review of Inkfish's THE BRAIN
