Camille et Rodin

A post-My Fair Lady adaptation of Pygmalion based on the love affair of Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin

This play finds a middle-aged Camille Claudel, dying slowly of loneliness in an asylum. A genius trapped in an époque that isn’t ready for her, Camille is haunted by her failed love affair with Auguste Rodin, the sculptures that betrayed her and memories of the Venus-faced ingénue she once was.
