Archives - Dear Antoine

by Jean Anouilh

Directed by Ray Aspey

Saturday 23rd – Saturday 30th October 1976 in the Auditorium

The time is 1913. Antoine, the most successful playwright of his day, is dead. His wife, ex-mistresses and a few friends meet in the last of his many homes, a Bavarian chateau, to hear the reading of his will. They are caught up in a strange masquerade of the dead man’s invention.

Reality and theatrical illusion blend in this strong piece of theatre.
