Contemporary theatre, as attentive readers may have noticed, is not exactly my favourite pastime. Though when well performed, like this, it is a quite tolerable way to spend an evening out!
Patricia Piazza Georget, writer, director and main performer of this adaptation of Octave Mirbeau's Journal d'une Femme de Chambre, turned out to be one of my more artistic neighbours. (And yet I do live surrounded by talents, even now that Foenkinos has moved out!) She acted the heck out of her monologue, and sang beautifully, too.
The drama is no longer played at the Théâtre Stéphane Gildas but should be put on at another Parisian venue in the autumn.
