“Nothing is funnier than unhappiness” Samuel Beckett
The Institut francais presents the British premiere of Trois Ruptures (Three Splits) the new dark comedy by award-winning French playwright Remi De Vos, directed by Marianne Badrichani and performed by Edith Vernes and Chris Campbell.
Trois Ruptures presents relationships fracturing with joyous, willful violence. Hysterically comic, these three scenes destroy our comfortable conceits of gender equality, sexual tolerance and the primacy of the child..
