The Chalk Garden

The Chalk Garden by Enid Bagnold

13-15 February 1969

Psychological drama 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.
