Mélanie Leray / Pierre Maillet Lars Norén
Lars Norén’s keen, absurd and extreme writing reveals the destructive power of our neuroses in his virtually naturalist plays, the result of his long immersion in places of exclusion and family units.
This world behind closed doors features two brothers, brought together by their mother’s death, and their wives. Alcohol and fatigue push them over the edge into hysteria.
