STEUBENVILLE, OH— The Franciscan University Theatre Department will present Jean Giradoux’s The Madwoman of Chaillot as translated by Maurice Valency to audiences this spring.
Set in 1945, a group of artists and one “elderly woman of unbalanced mental capacity” work to stop a greedy profiteer and his gang of villains from blowing up Paris to search for oil. It is an iconic tale of finding joy in an environment that is overwhelmed with a challenge of beauty vs. greed.
Performances will be held April 1, 2, 7, 8, and 9 at 7pm, and April 2 and 10 at 2pm in Anathan Theatre, on the ground floor of Egan Hall.
Tickets are $4 for adults and $2 for students and seniors. Admission is free for clergy, religious, and children under 12. Tickets may be reserved by calling 740-283-6245, Monday-Friday 8:00am-4:00pm, or bought at the door on a first come, first served basis.
