The Parisian Woman

Let's Get Social

The Parisian Woman

The Parisian Woman is a 2013 play in by Beau Willimon. It premiered at the South Coast Repertory, in April 2013 and centers on Chloe, a socialite armed with charm and wit, coming to terms with politics, her past, her marriage and an uncertain future. The play is inspired by Henri Becque’s La Parisienne.
The Parisian Woman is set in Washington, D.C., where powerful friends are the only kind worth having, especially after the 2016 election. At the centre is Chloe (Uma Thurman), a socialite armed with charm and wit, coming to terms with politics, her past, her marriage and an uncertain future. Dark humour and drama collide at this pivotal moment in Chloe’s life, and in our nation’s, when the truth isn’t obvious and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
