Why is the Madwoman of Chaillot so mad? Explore Phoenix Theatre’s latest production


WATCH: The Phoenix Theatre’s production on now is all about the environment.

Director Conrad Alexandrowicz has made the story a bit more topical to our current times with this story of good and evil involving the “Madwoman” taking on businessmen intent on drilling and pipelining Paris.

One of the challenges in this production was creating costumes that graphically reflected the nature of the two sides in this struggle.

This fell to Master’s student Michelle Ning Lo who saw one side of the conflict in colour and the other side in black and white.

The costumes are striking, the story intriguing and remember, it’s a comedy.

The Madwoman of Chaillot runs til the Nov. 25 at UVic’s Phoenix Theatre.
