How happily married are the happily married?

Following a sold-out run at the National Theatre and direct from a West End transfer, Katherine Parkinson reprises her acclaimed role as Judy in Laura Wade’s new comedy about one woman’s quest to be the perfect 1950s housewife. Every couple needs a little fantasy to keep their marriage sparkling. But behind the gingham curtains, things start to unravel, and being a domestic goddess is not as easy as it seems.
