‘The Good Women’: A Queer Rom-Com Play at Cockpit Theatre This Weekend

Straight from the heart of London’s vibrant theatre scene, we have a queer rom-com set in the 1960s that’s sure to steal your heart and make you laugh out loud. Say hello to “The Good Women,” now playing at The Cockpit Theatre.

What’s the “The Good Women” About?

“The Good Women” is more than just a play; it’s a celebration of queer love and women’s empowerment, wrapped in a delightful package of romance and comedy. Set against the backdrop of the Swiss suffragette movement of the 1960s, this play tells the enchanting love story of Bette, a TV cooking show star, and Trudy, a housewife. Inspired by a true story and a Swiss cookbook authored by two remarkable women, this play is as authentic as it is entertaining.

This gem had its critically acclaimed premiere at VAULT in 2023 and was so loved that it was invited to transfer to Greenwich Theatre. After a sold-out tour across the UK and Ireland, “The Good Women” is back in London, ready to dazzle audiences once again.

Content Warnings: The play contains themes of sexual and domestic violence, suicide, and substance abuse.
