Product Information

5f.

  • Having known poverty and outlived three husbands, Madame Rachel has found a lucrative occupation which she has no intention of losing.
  • Making use of knowledge gained from one husband, a chemist's assistant, she makes up worthless potions and elixirs, gives them romantic names, and battens on the desire of foolish, ignorant women to remain "beautiful for ever", aided - with increasing concern - by her elder daughter, Leonte.
  • The silly, simpering Mrs. Borrodaile seems a prize victim, and Madame uses all her cunning to defraud her, even to the creation of a supposed titled lover.
  • She divests her of all she possesses and even causes her to be imprisoned for debt.
  • But at last she over-reaches herself: Nemesis arrives from an unexpected source, and as the play ends the shadows of retribution fall across Madame Rachel's face.
  • Period: 1867.
