Tailleur pour dames
In Belle Époque Paris, the recently married Dr. Moulineaux tells "one, tiny, little, hardly noticeable lie" to cover an innocent but embarrassing indiscretion. From that single untruth tumbles a cascade of increasingly convoluted deceptions, misunderstandings and mistaken identities, all adding up to a hilariously zany and infectiously charming farce.
Dans le Paris de la Belle Epoque, le Docteur Moulineaux raconte “un petit, minuscule mensonge à peine visible” pour couvrir une indiscrétion innocente mais embarrassante. De cette simple contre-vérité découle une cascade de tromperies, d’incompréhensions et d’erreurs d’identité de plus en plus alambiquées. Cette recette explosive résulte en une farce désopilante, attendrissante et empreinte d’une certaine folie douce.
Réparer les vivants
Réparer les vivants (The Heart) is the adaptation by Emmanuel Noblet of realistic and medical fiction novel by 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.
