Edith Evans gives a remarkable performance in Jean Anouilh’s sparkling comedy of manners. When a prince (Maxwell) loses the woman he loves, his aunt (Evans) recreates the special places of their romantic meetings and hires a local shop girl to play the part of his lover. With many overtones of Pygmalion, the girl comes to win the prince’s heart by learning to simply be herself. Jane and Maxwell make a charming couple who perfectly capture a growing attraction.
