Flaubert's Latest

Mainstage Theater

Written by Peter Parnell
Directed by David Saint

Take a sumptuous Connecticut garden (and gardener); a struggling novelist trying to complete Gustave Flaubert's final, unfinished novel Bouvard et Pecuchet; his choreographer lover; a spiritualist who's playing Madame Arcati in a summer stock production of Blithe Spirit; and last, but not least, the magical arrival of the author of Madame Bovary himself, along with his lover, the feminist-poet Louise Colet, and you have all the ingredients for a bold and fanciful excursion into the land of love, literature and the intrepid artistic idols whom we want to adore—at least until we really get to know them.
