English-language theatre returns to the Capucins in the shape of incisive drama “Dealing with Clair”.
Luxembourg director Anne Simon takes on an early work by British playwright Martin Crimp. “Dealing with Clair” is set in the yuppie culture of the 1980s and ultimately tackles “the psychological violence of a white-collar world where money talks, the moral ambivalence of the middle classes and (...) men’s abuse and belittlement of women”. A strong cast featuring several Simon alumni almost guarantees this will be as impressive as the director’s last outings at the Capucins, January’s “Stupid Fucking Bird”, 2017’s “Love and Understanding” and 2016’s “All New People”. Assisted by Tim Dockal, Simon has also again teamed up with set and costume designer Clio Van Aerde, who did such a stellar job on “Stupid Fucking Bird”.
The play opens on Tuesday 26 November with additional performances on 28 November and 3, 4 & 7 December. Janine Goedert will present an introduction to the play at 7.30 pm before each performance.
