Madame Bovary is the tragic, yet scintillating story of a woman who longed for a life she could never fully achieve. Emma Bovary is a woman who desires the illustrious and romantic world she has only read about in books or observed from afar. As this desire grows, Emma must seek to fulfill it, whatever the cost, in an ultimate quest to become the Madame Bovary of her wildest and most passionate dreams. Telling Emma's story through the eyes of her own daughter, Adrienne Kennedy brings a fresh and exciting approach to this classic novel.


REVIEWS

"Adrienne Kennedy has influenced 'generations of playwrights with her hauntingly fragmented lyrical dramas...frequently produced, read, and taught, they continue to hold a prominent place among the most exciting plays of the past 50 years.'" - broadwayworld.com

"To many, Ms. Kennedy has blended the surreal and the social to invent a new dramatic form." - The New York Times


Madame Bovary was presented as a reading by The Signature Theatre in New York City, in February of 2006.
