THEATER: "Eight women", pure triumph of Stateless people


Performed to sold-out audiences since the premiere at the Théâtre de La Chapelle, the new play by the Compagnie des Apatrides is a grandiose experience unanimously acclaimed.

An illustrious play written in 1958 by Robert Thomas, the inventive revisit of “8 Femmes” is a resounding success which is rightly a full house at the Théâtre de La Chapelle. Extra time will be played on February 10 and 11. The plot of this crime drama takes place on Christmas morning. As snow covers the inaccessible area, the father of the family is found murdered. The eight women present are therefore suspect: the wife, the sister-in-law, the mother-in-law, the two daughters, the maid, the governess and the sister. The characters challenge each other and tongues loosen. This 100% female cast performed with a talent that far surpasses any amateur theater performance is made up of Camille Gréa, Jill Llobregat, Aurélie Dubuis, Bérangère Mathot, Christine Pouzet, Jeanne Engelmann, Diane de St-Alary and Béatrice Wojcik. Their pleasure in playing together is proportional to the magnificence of the staging of Audrey Duputié who offers here one of her most beautiful theatrical proposals, with the technical genius of Erwan Trotel and the know-how of Virginie Conties. This version of “8 Femmes”, the fruit of 18 months of work, is full of winks and derision that leave you dreaming and admiring. _VX
