The lyric-ironic comedy "Supper at Senlis" was written back in 1936, but it will not lose its relevance as long as humanity continues to dream about one thing and live differently, often doing nothing in order to change its existence and bring it as close as possible. him to his own ideal.
A play about how difficult it is to make a choice. A choice between the hypocritical luxury life in Paris, and the sincere everyday life in the provinces. About the choice between bad, but so familiar and familiar, and perhaps much better, but unknown and probable. The main character - Georges - is the only son in the family, but there is no understanding and closeness with his parents. They are sybarites, spoiled by luxury, which they never knew how to earn, frivolous spenders who never lived exclusively on their own funds. Every rentier lives his own life. The father is a dandy and idiot, the mother is an extravagant fashionista, whose efforts are primarily aimed at preserving youth and "maintaining the bar" in front of her friends.
Georges also has a friend, Robert, who lives with his wife in his own house, and also considers himself part of the family. Robert is a parasite and impudent, a cynic who knows about the intimate relationship between his wife and Georges, but continues to portray the blind, justifying his existence by life circumstances. The "family" convinced Georges to marry a woman he did not love, and forces Georges to remain in the hated marriage, since it is his wife, Henriette, who keeps the whole crowd in luxury. Will Georges have enough determination to change anything in his life?
The performance features live music performed by a trio (clarinet, accordion and violin), which helps to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of France in the thirties. XX century. The performance is very aesthetic: beautiful actors, exquisite costumes, atmospheric music.
