Click here for Ondine at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2022.

Theatre Paradok presents: “Ondine” by French playwright Jean Giraudoux, translated by Philomène Cheynet.

Impulsive, frank and filled with wonder, Ondine is a young water nymph drawn to the human world. One stormy night by the lake, she meets Hans, a knight-errant travelling through the nearby forest, and she immediately and violently falls in love with him. To free herself of the water world, Ondine makes a secret pact with the spirit of the lake which ultimately brings about a tragic end. “Ondine” is just as poetic, thought provoking, and deeply touching as it is uniquely absurd! It’s full of extravagant characters, unhinged dialogues and random digressions. This play will shatter all expectations!

Running from the 27th to the 30th of March in Teviot Underground, Teviot Row House in Edinburgh.
