MADAME MARGUERITE by Roberto Athayde

At Neos Kosmos Theatre, since 21 February!

Madame Marguerite is no ordinary teacher… She is an impetuous woman who teaches, teases and taunts her class with an iron fist. Her students have no control over their own life, no free will. And as she tells us, "Obedience is the greatest of all virtues"!

Written during the dark era of the Brazilian dictatorship in the 1970s, by the Brazilian playwright Roberto Athayde, “Madame Marguerite" is a searing drama that looks deeply into the heart of power. Originally banned, then censored in Brazil, Athayde's homeland, this caustic political allegory about totalitarianism, which uses a classroom as its central metaphor, thrilled audiences and critics in over 50 countries worldwide, becoming an international classic!
