Stoning Mary

In the same vein as the so-called theatre of confrontation, Rémy Barché presents a new text written by debbie tucker green and delivered by the acting students of the National Theatre of Strasbourg. For many years now, this young British playwright has been considered as one of the most original voices of the English theatre in London. This play stages Westerners in storylines which we would rather assigned to populations of the Third World: a man and a woman infected by HIV have to decide which of them will be able to access the only treatment they can afford; a couple argues about their son who has become a child soldier; a woman visits her sister who is in prison, waiting for her execution by stoning. The end of the play will reveal the tragic link between the three stories. In this picture of a society in which the connections have been dissolved by civil war et illness, debbie tucker green wants to awaken us deep in our consciousnesses, to touch us as if she could feel our skin, thanks to the amazing power of her writing style.
