  • Overview
    Also adapted by Frank McGuinness.

    In The Stronger, two women meet. One does all the talking-the other does all the listening-we discover that the husband of the one is the lover of the other. Who will be the stronger?

    Madame X begins as the weaker character, seemingly destroyed by her husband's infidelity, whilst Mademoiselle Y's silence indicates her as the stronger character. As the play develops however, Madame X possibly emerges as the "stronger" of the two as it becomes evident she still has her husband, and Mademoiselle Y is left with nothing.
