The Chalk Garden

(1956)
A Book by

 
Full Length, DramaCharacters: 2 male, 7 female

Interior Set

Revived to acclaim on the West End in 2008, this psychological chamber piece explores the secret world of childhood through the prism of a dyed-in-the-wool British dowager Mrs. St. Maugham and her precocious and equally eccentric granddaughter Laurel. When enigmatic Miss Madrigal is hired as household companion and manager, the two finally meet their match. "A tantalizing, fascinating and stimulating piece of theatre."- New York Daily News "A very fresh and personal kind of play with wit, literacy, and an almost unearthly integrity." -New York Herald Tribune
