The Madwoman of Chaillot
Written by Jean Giraudoux • Translation by Maurice Valency
Directed by Stephanie Shroyer
Liquid (and comedic) gold fuels this feminist, fantastical, frack-tured fairy tale. Oil is discovered under Paris, and Countess Aurelia and her kooky coterie are determined to drive away the evil corporate profiteers lying in wait. A can’t miss rallying-cry for those who crave a satisfying David vs. Goliath fable in the form of incisive, side-splittingly funny theatre.
“Madwoman of Chaillot, The” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
