Sacha Guitry, Ma fille et Moi
Tuesday 16 January 2018 - Saturday 03 February 2018
Performed in French with English surtitles
"Toutes les femmes sont comédiennes, à l’exception de quelques actrices"
"All women act a part, save a few actresses"
One evening in her dressing room, a distinguished actress talks her daughter through her memories and her tempestuous relationships with the playwright and partner in crime Sacha Guitry.
It is a swan song, a kaleidoscope of adventures and misadventures…or a lesson on how to make a permanent coup de theatre of your life.
This world Premiere, as a tribute to Sacha Guitry on the 60th anniversary of his death, celebrates his undying admiration for women and his particular talent for mixing reality and fiction.
Following two sell-out shows, Trois Ruptures/Three Splits by Rémi De Vos (London, Beijing) and Ionesco/Dinner at the Smiths(London, Paris), this new production is the third collaboration between actress Edith Vernes and director Marianne Badrichani.
All performances begin at 7:30pm and will run for 80 minutes without an interval.
Tickets priced at £27 include a glass of wine with the performance.
There will be a Gala Evening on Tuesday 23rd January, including a post show talk, drinks and canapés. Tickets are £50 for this evening.
