New York Premiere Courteline en dentelles
Short Plays by Georges Courteline
With Jérôme Deschamps and Michel Fau
Wednesday, February 29
and Thursday, March 1, 2012
FIAF, Florence Gould Hall
Presented in partnership with the Center for French Civilization and Culture, New York University
Jérôme Deschamps directs and acts in a series of delightful short plays by the witty French satirist and dramatist Georges Courteline, a contemporary of Georges Feydeau.
Joined by the acclaimed stage actor Michel Fau, Deschamps pokes fun at human imperfection and the triviality of everyday life. Packed with banter and inane arguments, this performance promises to be a comical, often insightful study of human nature.
In French without English supertitles.
"Alternately funny and naughty, always mischievous, polished, the plays that slam human failings are hilarious thanks to two clowns, Jérôme Deschamps and Michel Fau."—Le Figaro, June 2011
"Characters, situations, texts, lines, all make the audience burst out laughing. This Reading owes a lot to two performers, unique and united."—Figaroscope, June 2011
