Deux amis – Pascal Rambert – Theatre

Friends and colleagues for thirty years, Charles and Stan, two stage actors, argue about their ambitious new project, restaging Antoine Vitez’s legendary 1978 performance of the four Molière plays, The Misanthrope, the School for Wives, Tartuffe, and Dom Juan. And like their master and Molière himself, the duo want to perform without a set, but merely a table, two chairs, and a stick. During rehearsals, Charles unfortunately reads a message on Stan’s phone from a mysterious H. Discord ensues. On Tuesday, May 7 at 20:00 at the Théâtre Princesse Grace.
