This play, first written in French and performed in France, is a novel invention and is one of the great works of modern theatre. It breaks down all the conventions and rules of theatre (set up by Aristotle and his unities) and produces and almost non-play. There is no action, little characterisation and no hints at time or place, in short the audience are totally lost. It is a strange beast of a play and should be read as well as seen on the strange. It is totally original and you will have read nothing like it, ever.
