Synopsis

This adaptation reimagines Dinesen’s classic tale as a rich theatrical event: deep, funny, sensual, dangerous and beautiful. It brings us into the cloistered 19th-century world of two loving, devout Lutheran sisters and tells us how they and their fractured community reluctantly, then completely, embrace Babette, a mysterious French refugee. But when Babette, much to the community’s shock, sacrifices all she has to throw a lavish dinner party, the dinner guests magically and inexplicably experience radical, infinite grace. Babette’s sumptuous feast is more than a meal: it is an act of supreme artistry that invites an abundant experience of forgiveness and transforms the entire community. Through Babette’s Feast, we learn how embracing the stranger can change a community for the better.
