Based on Isak Dinesen’s short story made famous by the 1987 Academy Award-winning film, this new stage adaptation of Babette’s Feast premiered in January 2018 in Portland, Maine to rave reviews.
The play tells the story of Babette, a French refugee, who finds asylum in a pious Norwegian village. With boundless generosity, she throws a lavish feast that becomes an agent of transformative grace, healing a fractured community.
This new play is a bundle of exciting contradictions that can only be captured in the theatre.
