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.


Running Time: 2 hours and 25 minutes including an intermission
Content Advisory: This production includes scenes with e-cigarettes that emit water vapor.
