Equal parts black comedy and psychological drama, The Wife centers around Ruth, a Hasidic woman who befriends her white neighbors. What seems at first an innocent relationship quickly escalates, and the play spirals into a series of events which unravel an entire community. With wit, humor, and wisdom, Smith’s play exposes the best and worst parts of humanity, kind people turn venomous, and cruel people act with compassion.
