Odéon 6e

 with Isabelle Huppert, Justine Bachelet, Cyril Gueï, Antoine Reinartz

Twenty years later, a poet confides about his long-lost youth. In his memory, though he longs to break free, Tom is still sharing a small flat with his mother – an self-proclaimed Southern belle of yore who insists on living up to her principles – and his sister, a fragile young woman who seems quite unable to overcome her shyness, if not worse. But everything, surely, is about to change, for tonight, a certain « gentleman caller » is expected for dinner… Isabelle Huppert is back in the Odéon, her theatre of choice, in Tennessee William’s first major play. Nahuel Pérez Biscayart (César 2018 for Best Young Actor) plays Tom. A stellar cast, directed by Ivo van Hove.
