The Chalk Garden

By Enid Bagnold

September 16,17 23,24,25 30, October 1 7,8,9 2016
(Preview September 15 & Matinees September 25 & October 9)

This is a comedy/drama Time Magazine called "elegantly savage" and the Herald Tribune pronounced, "seen through with wit, literacy and an almost unearthly integrity." The play is set in a handsome manor house outside London. Past and present collide when a mysterious Miss Madrigal answers an advertisement for governess of an unruly teen-age girl. The girl lives with her grandmother, an aging, overpowering, once beautiful society hostess in London who is estranged from her own daughter. Sharply funny, the conflicts of these four women are complicated by a bedridden, tyrannical butler, an ex-felon houseman and a judge who comes to lunch and who may have presided over a murder trial involving Madrigal.

Directed by Chesley Plemmons
