Melbourne French Theatre: Mariages et Conséquences

Melbourne French Theatre have just announced the details of their new production: Mariages et Conséquences, a French adaptation of the Alan Ayckbourn comedy known as Absent Friends.

Clément’s friends are determined to comfort him in his grief over the death of his fiancée, a girl they have never met. They arrange a tea-party for him and are understandably on edge wondering what to say to him as they await his arrival.

Their unease, however, has deeper roots as they are all kept together by a mixture of business and cross-marital emotional ties and by the time Clément arrives, their tension contrasts dramatically with his cheerfully relaxed air. The stage is set for a modern light comedy of manners that quickly turns into a dark comedy of very bad manners.

As always, the Melbourne French Theatre will present the play entirely in French with English subtitles. 

When? Tuesday 23 August to Saturday 27 August 2011.
Where? Collingwood College Theatre, cnr Cromwell Street & McCutcheon Way, Collingwood.
How much? Full $32, Concession $28, Student $12. Click here to book online.
