« La Perruche – The Parakeet »
By Audrey Schebat.
Directed by Emilie Guillot.
Romantic comedy in French with English simplified subtitles.
In Audrey Schebat's La Perruche a married couple, while waiting for their friends to attend a small soiree, fall into disagreement and start to analyze the nature of their relationship. This couple, male and female, don a veritable wardrobe of well-worn married archetypes. Throughout the play we witness 1950's dynamics, 1990's sitcom banter, what feels like an allusion to A Doll's House, and contemporary technology. These masks, coupled with little analysis of social circumstances that somehow brought them to this state in 2019, create a loss of dramatic intimacy.
Dates: November 5th to 9th, 2019.
Welcoming cocktail/Finger food to purchase on site.
