Simone Weil, a French girl of Jewish extraction whose death in 1943 was caused primarily by self-imposed starvation, is the subject of this striking theatrical exploration into the nature of faith and spirituality. Approaching Simone gives fascinating insights into this extraordinary woman who was later canonized as a saint.
