Life X 3

Life X 3
Written by Yasmina Reza
Directed by Emma Stewart
7 -12 November 2005

Henri and Sonia are putting their son to bed when Hubert and Ines arrive for dinner, a day earlier than expected. As the evening degenerates, Yasmina Reza’s play – elegantly translated by Christopher Hampton – blends cruel observations with high comedy in an hilarious and poignant examination of our most personal intimacies and private longings. We see three versions of the same socially hapless evening in which the characters change subtly each time, providing a dramatically different outcome for each.
