One of the features of the fine-weather season at Valençay is a series of little costume dramas that are performed in the courtyard of the château. Quite a few local people are employed by or have signed contracts with the château to provide costumes and other services. The actors wear microphones and the spectators can hear them over loudspeakers, but unless things have changed the scenes are performed only in French.
I think this will be my last Valençay post. I'm moving on... to where I'm not sure. Another month of lock-down (confinement) in France means more travelogues from me, in all likelihood.
