By Rémi De Vos, directed by Marianne Badrichani and performed by Edith Vernes and Chris Campbell at the Print Room
“It’s a comedy. The subject is not funny. We shouldn’t laugh. But we do” – Rémi De Vos
After playing to sell-out audiences last January, French dark comedy, Three Splits, is back at the Print Room.
Why settle for an amicable break up when revenge, drama and surprise show how very much we care? Three couples, three splits, three stories. Award-winning French playwright Rémi De Vos’s fierce analysis of the human condition, through an absurdist prism, reveals our compelling attraction toward disaster.
The play premiered to sell-out audiences last January at the Chelsea Theatre then in Beijing, China. Trois Ruptures/Three Splits was selected among 150 new plays by the Cross Channel Theatre Group (The Best of French New Writing) and is produced by the Institut Francais and presented as part of En Scène!
“Marianne Badrichani’s productions (…) trade a delicate line between testing relationships and inventing new ones, between illusions and delusion. Unusual and fanciful.” (The Daily Mail)
“Edith Vernes and Chris Campbell both give solid performances. Their comic timing is excellent.” britishtheatre.com
