Inspired by Rousseau, and in need of a maid, the Baroness sets herself the task of transforming a "pure, unsullied creature" into a presentable maid. But learning how to set a table is one thing; Emily's unforeseen traumas are quite another. What moral imperatives differentiate instinctive behaviour from rational behaviour? What chance have the Baroness' enlightened plans for Emily in the messy human world that is their reality? Published in cooperation with the Shaw Festival, this edition of The Baroness and the Pig includes a foreword by Artistic Director Tim Carroll and an essay by Resident Scholar Leonard Conolly. It also includes information on the Festival's 2018 production of The Baroness and the Pig, directed by Selma Dimitrijevic and designed by Camellia Koo. Based on characters created by Catherine Fitch and Marion Day
