Madame

Comedy Romance


 

A modern day Cinderella story, a maid attends a dinner party at her employer's request and an art dealer falls for her thinking she is a member of the Spanish nobility.

"Madame" is a comedy of manners and an exposition of the constructs of class and societal privilege. Prejudice and discrimination are tricky territories to navigate, more so with satire. A clever balance is achieved but there's an occasional misstep; some offhand comments are made that are offensive enough to make the audience wince - we can think that but we can't say that. The real lady of the house is the maid.
