Countess Aurelia (The Madwoman of Chaillot) Countess Aurelia is a central character and the eponymous “madwoman” in French playwright Jean Giraudoux’s 1943 satirical drama “The Madwoman of Chaillot”. The first act of the two-act play is set inside a Parisian café in the district of Chaillot where audience goers are introduced to some nefarious businessmen intent upon demolishing Paris in order to dig up oil reserves they believe to be located under the city. Aurelia, the self-styled Countess and neighborhood madwoman, decides she must save the day: “Nothing is ever so wrong in this world that a sensible woman can't set it right in the course of an afternoon.” The drama features a collection of memorable characters, fellow eccentrics and oddballs, whom the Countess recruits in her efforts to save the world (the Ragpicker, the Street Singer, the Sewer Man, the Sergeant, the Flower Girl, and Mademoiselles Constance, Gabrielle and Josephine). In the second act, located in the cellar apartment where Aurelia lives, the plan is carried out. The evil capitalists and their equally greedy entourage are sent down a door in the floor – drawn by the smell of oil – into the intricate sewer system that lies underneath the streets of Paris – presumably never to be heard from again. At last, Aurelia can get back to what is really important: feeding her cats. “My poor cats must be starved. What a bore for them if humanity had to be saved every afternoon.” No wonder Giraudoux selected the “golden” name of Aurelia for his delightfully eccentric heroine – to contrast against the sooty evil she must conquer to restore hope in the future.
