By Enid Bagnold

A Benefit Reading for The Acting Company


Starring Angela Lansbury

Additional Casting To Be Announced


After many younger years as a London society hostess, Mrs. Saint Maugham fills her days tending her garden at her country estate. As she seeks a governess for her granddaughter, Laurel (whose habit of setting small fires is getting a bit out of hand) the child connects instantly with Miss Madrigal, an enigmatic woman who has come without any references. Who, exactly, is this Madrigal? With a talent for gardening and avoiding questions, she fascinates the equally inscrutable Laurel, who can never resist a mystery...especially if it might involve murder.


Presented by arrangement with Andrew Bryan.
