The Madwoman of Chaillot

Wednesday, Apr 24, 2019 - Sunday, May 12, 2019 at Clarence Brown Theatre Mainstage

By Jean Giraudoux

Translated by Laurence Senelick

“A deliciously comic fable.” 

A group of corrupt oil men want to drill right under the streets of Paris. But Countess Aurelia and her band of eccentric followers are having none of it!

A treasure of French poetic satire since its premiere in 1945, the characters, the absurdities, and the political commentary seem just as relevant today.
