“A fascinating, absorbing adventure, full of grace and wit.”
A schoolteacher in a provincial French town is seduced by the ghost of a murderer. With the aid of the village doctor, she seeks answers regarding the riddle of death. Enter her lover--an ardent bureaucrat who hopes his well-calibrated love will keep her earthbound.
A poetically musical and mercurial classic, a clash between the struggles of life and the mystery of death, The Enchanted is the perfect platform for Giraudoux to exercise his signature playful theatricality: characters hilariously and whimsically debate whether our fear of death fuels our love of life and whether the dead could outvote the living if they imprudently returned.
