Fool For Love by La compagnie du Vingt-Trois
“Fool For Love” is a tragic, emotional love story, set in a cheap motel on the edge of the Mojave desert, a modern American « Wild West », where strangers are always passing through. “Fool For Love ” is perhaps Shepard’s greatest play : an emotional ride through a poisonous love story, set in a dying American West.
Directed by Julie Zeno
State of Emergency by West 17 Theatre Company
Spring 2016. Paris, France.
After a series of terrorist attacks police powers have been increased, and a young woman has died at the hands of an officer. As the presidential election draws near her case stirs outrage and boosts support for the liberal candidate vying to unseat the incumbent, a law-and-order hardliner. Little do the candidates know that three flatmates in an obscure Paris apartment are about to detonate a political bombshell — and expose the state of emergency’s dark underside.
State of Emergency, written by Irene and Georgian, is West 17’s first production
