"On the platform stage, bare but for a pair of immense gates, stalks the inevitable tiger of war. Hector returns from battle as a peacemaker and convinces Ulysses and the populace of the insanity of war. Together they agree that the Trojan War shall not take place. But the poets need a war for their elegies and dirges; the king, because it is custom; the lawyer, because of his honor; and others, for various mean reasons. And so, in spite of all logic, the war erupts."--Publisher's description

ONDINE is the story of Syracuse, a simple fisherman who catches a beautiful and mysterious woman in his trawler nets. The woman seems to be dead, but then she comes alive before Syracuse s eyes, and he thinks he may be seeing things. However, with the help of his irrepressible daughter, Annie, he comes to believe that the fantastical might be possible and that the woman (Ondine) might be a myth come true. Ondine and Syracuse fall passionately in love, but just as we think the fairytale might go on forever, the real world intercedes

"Here is the quintessence of Giraudoux's extraordinary imagination and style. A shy girl applying for a job at the Office of Inventions learns from a nondescript man that she can have her way with any man if she declares that he is as handsome as the nonexistent statue of the Apollo of Bellac. The play is alive with wry and trenchant observations on the comical attitudes and truths that man assumes in life."--Publisher's description
