Life x 3
Venue: Swan Theatre (Vesta Tilley Studio)
Dates: 19th to 23rd April 2022
The play starts with Henri and Sonia trying to settle their son down to bed when an unexpected knock at the door throws them into disarray. Hubert and Ines have arrived for dinner, a day earlier than expected!
It is a very important dinner for Henri as he wants to suck up to Hubert, in order to get his thesis published and thus get promotion. However, the evening degenerates into insults and sarcasm as all four begin to reveal their true feelings and longings. What makes this play unusual is that the same scene is done three times, each with a different emphasis and each with a different variation. New aspects of the characters personality are revealed, which one is real?
