In The Cabinet Minister’s Wife the classic master of comedy Branislav Nušić skillfully jokes with a painfully familiar phenomenon. Both a biting political satire and an ingenious anecdote, the play shows how in a single morning the simple wife of a newly fledged politician turns into a power-hungry woman.


Lilia Maraviglia gets under the skin of the common housewife Zhivka turned Mrs Zhivana Popovich with zeal and talent. Her power-drunk heroine vigorously builds her new persona with all means possible but in politics nothing is ever certain… Director Nedyalko Delchev and Sofia Theatre’s dedicated company create a remarkable present-day version of this classic comedy that has been on stage ever since it was written in 1931.
