Théâtre ()

by Luigi Pirandello in a new version by Tanya Ronder Director Richard Eyre Choreography Scarlett Mackmin

Résumé: I have lots of sons with nothing to inherit, Uncle Simone has no sons with lots to inherit.

Sicily, summer 1916. Gossiping and singing, the women gather to harvest old Simone’s almond crop. He’s the richest landowner in the district but he has no heir. Local lad Liolà, untroubled by convention, has fathered three little boys, each with a different mother, and that only intensifies Simone’s anguish. When another of the girls falls pregnant, Simone is persuaded he might recognize the baby as his own. But he’s forgotten the charms of his slighted young wife Mita, who is not so easily crushed.

All I should say, girls, is don’t be too sweet, lest you be eaten!

Commentaires : This high-spirited drama by Pirandello takes us to the heart of a rural community where property and family provoke fierce passions. Richard Eyre directs Tanya Ronder’s new version, performed by an Irish cast and gypsy musicians. It’s unexpected, funny and touching.

‘Touching and entertaining. Glows with the warmth of summer.’
Daily Telegraph

‘Richard Eyre’s beautifully judged production keeps the sun-baked Sicilian setting but his excellent cast give an Irish accent to the proceedings.’

‘A seductive curiosity.’
Sunday Times

‘A joyous summer surprise.’
Sunday Express

‘Tanya Ronder’s adaptation – poetic and full of juicy peasant dirt – meshes well with Orlando Gough’s “gypsy” songs.’
Financial Times
