ODYSSEY OF A PROSTITUTE

by Jack Hibberd

An adaptation from a short story by Guy de Maupassant written in 1984. This slender but poignant piece of writing has been expanded greatly, because Hibberd felt that its condensation concealed a number of layers below, and concentric circles of unspoken life.

The style is French Gothic and the structures Brechtian. Again there are lots of songs. Yvette’s life is full of grotesqueries and a chamber of comic horrors. She encounters such choice characters as August Morbide, Count Coolgardie, Ray le Sting, Henri Suave, and Zeek. At the end Yvette seems set for some happiness, but an elliptical threat soon intervenes.
