As told by Watts, "To express its somewhat moderate viewpoint, it takes us to Aix in the middle of the last century and introduces two ladies of contrasting temperaments. One is so concerned with sexual virtue that she snubs women of less exacting standards, causing their suspicion. To avenge herself for having her affairs made public, the bad angel drugs her enemy and makes her believe she has slept with a local rake while unconscious, thus tumbling her moral world about her." Although the "good angel" retains her purity she loses her "joy of the world."
This last play by Jean Giraudoux is a Gallic commentary on the story of the rape of Lucrece. "…a dainty conversation piece in terms of playful cynicism." —NY Times. "A striking and provocative theatrical work…" —NY Post. "…it is witty and cynical. Christopher Fry's poetic adaptation is literate and demanding." —NY Mirror. "DUEL OF ANGELS makes an elegant show of believing in none of the virtues, and possesses a great many of them." —NY Herald-Tribune.
