Background


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.


There will be a Gala Evening on Tuesday 23rd January, including a post show talk, drinks and canapés.


Tickets are £50 for this evening.


Performed in French with English surtitles.


Synopsis


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.
