les missions d’un mendiant(MISSIONS OF A BEGGAR)
Directed by Richard Leteurtre and Olivier Couder
These four short plays, dealing with the themes of family, exclusion, and disability, read as a lyric poem.
Following on from Beckett, Keene revives the short play, a genre uncommon in theatre. The play’s sparse style, rife with allusions and pushing us to read between the lines, brings the writing a sort of intense glow.
A magnificent play cosigned by Olivier Couder and Richard Leteurtre.
