    The Duchess: a.k.a. Wallis Simpson

    From the pen of award-winning playwright Linda Griffiths comes the Toronto hit in its United States premier directed by Stephen Wargo. This is the kaleidoscopic true tale of the infamous Wallis Simpson, the American woman for whom Edward VIII gave up the throne in 1936. Twice divorced, plain, common, crass and charismatic, Wallis must use her power of pure style to claw her way through pre-WWII European society, amidst the high scandal of her husband giving up the works while Hitler offered her the world. Sexual, naughty, wildly funny, and epic, the story of Wallis Simpson will leave you breathless.
