Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt - Jean-Luc Moreau - Nathalie Roussel - Julien Dereims - Theater
Julien has just moved into a studio and meets his young neighbour, who falls under the charm of the young man. But his mother who is ever present, will stop at nothing to smother the burgeoning romance and protect her son and his secret. Cleverly transposed into a contemporary Paris, this American play from the Seventies reveals its universal character. Managing to be tender, funny and ferocious, oscillating between laughter and tears, it takes us on a delicious emotional roller coaster. The precise stage direction and a brilliant performance from the actors raise this metaphorical ode to freedom to another level, where each character strives to free themselves from a personal straitjacket in order to accept and learn to love themselves.
