Wildwoman ()

Produced by

Soulpepper Theatre Company

Director: Kat Sandler
Playwright: Kat Sandler


The Marilyn and Charles Baillie Theatre


October 5th, 2023 – October 29th, 2023


Based on the shocking true story that inspired Beauty and the Beast, WILDWOMAN examines the lives of three very different women as they wrestle for survival and legacy in the 16th Century French Court of King Henry II.

Newly-arrived in France, Queen-to-be Catherine de Medici must contend with her unruly husband, a scheming maidservant and the king’s much-older mistress, as she struggles to give the kingdom what it needs most: an heir. But it’s Pete, the King’s pet wildman, a caged-oddity kept for amusement, who has the most surprising impact on their lives.

A viciously bold and sexy comedy, WILDWOMAN explores cyclical notions of gender, class and power, while asking what happens when we let the monster out. (
