Our next French night will host a play by Philippe Malone,
a french writer and photographer
who works a lot in urban and peri-urban neighborhood.
He has written 15 plays,
some of which were preformed on stage and on radio.
The titles reveal his concern
about the issues our consumers society brings up.
- Septembres - Krach -
Lost in a supermarket - Bien lotis
Bien lotis, 2013, the play we are going to read on stage,
is a "peri-urban epic", a "social comedy"
which is based on the interview of a couple
who lived in a project and then moved to their own private house,
as their financial and social situation improved.
"Bien lotis", which is almost impossible to translate,
they had a good house and
that they were successful
and got their part of the cake.
The play has 40 short scenes which "attempt to highlight the great peri-urban epic through a blend of quizzes, commentaries and flashbacks briskly conducted by a journalist."
Emmanuelle Ertel's Translation workshop students
will translate part of the play for the evening.
