The Madwoman of Chaillot by Jean Giraudoux

October 20, 21 and 22 • 7:30 pm
October 23 • 2:00 pm

The Madwoman of Chaillot is a satirical fable. Promoters plot to tear up the city in order to unearth the riches they believe are buried beneath it. These plans come to the attention of the neighborhood "madwoman", the essence of goodness and common sense. Seeing that the world is being turned into and unhappy place by those who are greedy for money and power, she mounts a trial of the unjust. Joy, justice and love return to the world, of course it is a fantasy.
