Filumena Marturano is a 1946 Italian play that was later adapted into the movie Marriage: Italian Style. In 1998 Judi Dench played the title role at the Piccadilly Theatre in London. Judi plays a former prostitute who tricks her long-time lover into marrying her. She does this by faking an illness and saying she doesn’t have much time to live. The two get married on her deathbed. Shortly afterwards she proceeds to make a miraculous recovery. That is when the fun really starts to happen. No clips of this production are available on-line.
