REPARER LES VIVANTS
May 11th- 7:30pm
Réparer les vivants (The Heart) is the adaptation by Emmanuel Noblet of realistic and medical fiction novel by the French author Maylis de Kerangal. The acclaimed production, which won the 2017 Molière for Solo Performance, has been described by Le Figaro as “absolutely remarkable… breathtaking and deeply moving theater that leads us to reflect on the most important questions we can ask ourselves.”
The touching and sometimes amusing French novel, Réparer les vivants, is about 19-year-old Simon’s tragic surfing accident and his organ donation to save another’s life.
Told through the voices of all the memorable characters involved, the story unfolds over the 24-hour deadline to transplant a human heart and unearths the complex wave of emotions and ethical questions that come with the miracle of modern medicine.
