Sign Language Interpreted Performance: UVic

UVic’s Department of Theatre presents a special performance with Sign Language Interpretation for:

The Madwoman of Chaillot 
Written by Jean Giraudoux, adapted by Maurice Valency
Directed by Conrad Alexandrowicz

Sign Language Interpretation with Deaf Interpreter Nigel Howard and Hearing Interpreters Mary Butterfield and Keith Brougham

Date: Saturday November 18, 2017
Time: 2:00pm.


Welcome to the neighbourhood of Chaillot and the whimsical world of Countess Aurelia, a flamboyant holdover from a less cynical time. She shares her joie de vivre and cryptic wisdom with everyone she encounters — until corrupt businessmen discover oil beneath Paris!  With everything she holds dear suddenly under threat, the Countess unites with a rag-tag group of local artists, vagabonds, and dreamers to fight back. This poetic and comic fable of good and evil was written in 1943 during the Nazi occupation of Paris, but the play has developed a whole new relevance in our current era of pipelines and protests.

(Recommended for ages 13+)
