Quand le diable s'en mêle

When the devil interferes

Adaptation and direction Didier Bezace
From three plays by Georges Feydeau :
Léonie est en avance, Feu la mère de madame,
On purge bébé.

On the Drôme Department's invitation, Didier Bezace has this summer taken possession of the courtyard of the château of Grignan where he has staged three short Feydeau's plays under the stars: Léonie est en avance, Feu la mère de madame, On purge bébé. Joyful and cruel fragmentary chronicles of wedded anarchy, a sure promise of summer evenings filled with magic and laughter. No slamming of doors, no settees or boudoirs, simply a large night stage on which are acted and re-enacted the cruel and funny changes of married life. To throw minds and bodies into a panic, Feydeau disguises himself and enters the game under the traits of various characters. A wonderful farce where couples left Eden a long time ago; they are in purgatory, and from purgatory to hell, there is but a short step... when the devil interferes.
