WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Hilda tells the haunting story of an upper-class woman's consuming obsession with the woman she hires to care for her children. With stark cinematic undertones, Hilda is a potent and provocative look at the seductiveness of control. Hilda is the first play by Marie Ndiaye, a French novelist whose work has been hailed for its emotional intensity and unsettling psychological depth. Like her novels and short stories, Hilda explores the author's recurring themes, the seductive appeal of control, ways in which intimacy can mask brutality, and the potentially cruel nature of psychological and sexual relationships based on unequal power. Considered one of the most dynamic new voices in French literature, she is one of only two women ever admitted to the Comédie-Française.
