Daniel Veronese Les enfants se sont endormis

[Theatre]

Ten characters, directly inspired by Chekhov’s The Seagull, keep meeting each other but eventually fail to communicate. Veronese’s staging contracts time and space in a single set to highlight the characters’ loneliness. This modern version of Chekhov’s play encourages the spectators’ identification, and proves that The Seagull remains an inexhaustible text.
