September:

Sept 21 The Castaways Repertory Theatre’s 2018-2019 season starts with our fall production of the classic The Madwoman of Chaillot. Written by Jean Giraudoux. English translation by Maurice Valency. Directed by Harry Kantrovich

A beautifully comedic play of stark contrasts in human character. The Madwoman of Chaillot divides the world sharply between the artists and the men of business. The Prospector, the Broker, and the President have discovered oil beneath the streets of Paris and seek to destroy whatever they must in order to get it. Their nefarious plans come to the attention of Countess Aurelia, the benignly eccentric madwoman of the title. She is an aging idealist who sees the world as happy and beautiful.

Performance Dates:
September 21 (e), 2 September 2 (e) September 23 (m)
September 28 (e), September 29 (m), September 29 (e)
October 5 (e), October 6 (e) October 7 (m)
