A comedy about infidelity in which one lie follows another
The author of this conversation play is one of the greatest talents of the contemporary French drama. The world premiere in 2011 in the Parisian Théâtre Montparnasse has launched its highly successful international tour. Czech theatregoers could have already seen it in various theatres across the country, this year for the first time in Pilsen. Michel, the main character of Zeller’s comedy, enters the play as a man who has no other choice but to lie. How else could he handle a situation where for six months he has been cheating on his wife with the wife of his best friend? Lying to all sides is something he considers not just an obligation, but mainly a way of showing consideration. Why hurt people we really care about? Michel believes that he is always one step ahead and that he knows more than the others do. But he is not prepared to the eventuality that the situation could turn around and that the events around his cheating could take an unexpected turn.
