Molière 2019 nomination for Comedy

Vincent is about to become a father for the first time: invited for dinner to his sister and brother-in-law’s house, where he finds his wife Anna and a childhood friend, he is peppered with questions about this future happy event. But when he reveals the first name he intends to give the unborn child, the secret reverberates like an explosion!

What joy to see these characters rip each other to shreds before us from prose that is as fine as lace. The piece hasn’t aged at all: you willingly take great pleasure in the relentless catalogue of things unsaid, bitterness, jealousy, antagonism and revelations that make this drama an irresistible comic banquet. The perfectly executed stage direction exalts an exhilarating dialogue and actors that are so credible that we tend to forget they are playing a role!

Hence Le Prénom is now a “classic” of modern theatre: timeless and transposable over the ages and generations of performers with ceaselessly renewed flavour.

Le Figaroscope: A successful wager! The two authors are talented. They know situation. They carve out extremely efficient, funny and extremely refined dialogue. They know how to give humanity and depth to the characters. The performance, which digs deep into the talent of highly skilled comedians and actors, is excellent!

Culture Box - France Info: A new, incredible generation in a now cult piece!
