Riot Girls: The Life And Loves Of A She Devil

Ep. 1/2 -

Part of Radio 4’s Riot Girls, a package of no-holds-barred women's writing that includes Erica Jong's Fear Of Flying and original plays following three generations of women by Lucy Catherine and Ella Hickson.

The Life And Loves Of A She Devil was written by Fay Weldon in 1983 and is a satire on the war of the sexes, and a fable about the rewards and dangers of our capacity for transformation. It is a darkly comic fairy tale about revenge, sex and power.

When Ruth discovers her husband is sleeping with a prettier, richer woman, she makes ingenious and diabolical plans to punish them both.
