Product Description

Although French author George Sand is still widely read as a novelist and feminist, her theatrical works have fallen into undeserved oblivion. THE NIGHT OF CHRISTMAS is adapted from a tale by the well-known German horror writer, E. T. A. Hoffmann. Sand pits the rigid rationalist Max against his friend Peregrinus Tyss, who believes in a world where sentiment plays a role. Peregrinus loves the young woman, Nanni, but knows he has no chance to win her hand. Then on Christmas Eve, the ghost of his old master returns, and teaches Max--and Peregrinus--some basic lessons about the possibilities of life and love. In AN EXOTIC FLOWER, the artist Julian has been watching his neighbor, the beautiful widow Stella, whom he admires from afar; but it takes Julian's cousin, Mark, to create the circumstance in which an "exotic flower" actually makes the relationship possible. Two very entertaining plays by a first-rate observer of the human condition!
