The Word of the WivesDiane Morrison, via The Good Book Stall
This series of monologues presents the imagined voices of twenty-six women of the Bible, but gives them modern-day thoughts, language and attitudes. It can be read as a collection of short stories or the pieces can be performed individually out loud, as many already have been very successfully (notes for performances are given with each one). Most of the women do not actually appear in the Bible, or are only mentioned in passing, being wives of major male figures, though there are some more prominent characters featured. The sketches flow quite naturally, which masks the fact that each one is carefully crafted – this is by no means an easy form of writing to do well. Rachael and Leah, Mrs Pilate and Mrs John stand out to me as being particularly powerful – reading some of the more humorous efforts I found it difficult to see what message was being conveyed. Word of the Wives will appeal to an almost entirely female audience who don’t find anachronism jarring and, in the case of ‘Mrs Newlywed’ and ‘Mrs 10’, have tolerably strong stomachs!
