Francophonie Festival: Swiss Theatre Night – “Le voyage d’Eugénie ou l’embarquement pour Cythère”

March 18, 2016 at 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Play, “Le voyage d’Eugénie ou l’embarquement pour Cythère”, by Swiss playwright Alboran. In French. Stage direction: Pascale Rocard. Eugénie played by Anne-Lise Fritsch. Free admission. Advance registration. 8:15 PM: Swiss Wine & Cheese reception

Synopsis: Eugénie, a senior citizen who is just returning from a guided bus tour with her lady friends, fights loneliness by sharing with us the memories — real or imagined — of her trip. All the while, she paints hilarious – and sometimes cruel – portraits of her travel companions and reflects on what should be her life before the other Grand Voyage she must take some day.
