Jean Giraudouix's comic fable tells the story of a group of promoters who plot to destroy Paris and unearth oil that they believe is beneath the city.
It is up to the Madwoman and her cohorts of colorful vagabonds to heal the ills of the world and destroy the warmongers.
The play was written in 1942 while Nazi troops occupied France. In the 1950s, it proved relevant as the Cold War emerged. During the late 1960s and early '70s, it enjoyed resurgence in the United States as a reaction to the Vietnam War.
