Programme of the French Institute

France-England : Word cup 2014 - Theatre

From 20/05/2014 at 19:30 to 21/05/2014 at 19:30

Too much football this year? Yearning for something slightly more… bookish?
French versus English: this relationship has been troubling us since the dawn of time. In the matter of war, women, customs, food and all… What do we think about them? What do they think about us? How does this eternal confrontation define our identities?

Sabine Haudepin and Niamh Cusack, two outstanding actors from either side of the Channel, will be hopping across centuries and literary genres to interpret this compulsive relationship.

An evening of readings, songs, quarrels, punches… Voltaire & Samuel Pepys, Shakespeare
& Molière, Prévert & Byron? All are invited to meet and collide at the Institut français.

Join them after the play at the Bistrot and bring your favourite literary piece. Share it with the enemy and toast to the entente cordiale!

With Niamh Cusack and Sabine Haudepin | directed by Solvène Tiffou
Running time: 70 mins | in French and in English
