    Cendrillon by Joël Pommerat
    Directed by Léo Elso
    Performed by Le Workshop students (monday group)
    Performed in French

     

    "Elle est gentille Sandra ! Elle est simple à vivre. Vous verrez."

    Que faire lorsque notre père se remarie et que le deuil de notre mère est bien trop pesant pour penser à la réalité ?

    Que faire quand on ne fait pas son âge et qu'on n'arrête pas de vous dire que vos filles, on dirait vos sœurs ?

    Que faire lorsque l'on doit hériter d'un trône bien trop grand pour soi et que notre père est coincé dans les grèves des transports depuis 10 ans ?

    Que faire lorsque votre filleule ne veut pas aller au bal, et qu'en plus elle ne veut pas vous laisser lui faire des tours de magie en paix ?

     

    Après deux ans sans spectacles, Le Workshop retrouve enfin les planches ! Et toutes ces questions, et bien plus encore, ne seront pas élucidées dans CENDRILLON, une nouvelle version du conte millénaire interprétée par les participant.e.s d'Exchange Theatre avec l'auteur de théâtre français le plus en vue du moment !


     

    "Sandra is nice. She's easy to be around.

    You'll see."

    What do we do when our father remarries and our mother's mourning is too strong to think about reality?

    What do we do when we don't look our age and we are constantly told that our daughters look like our sisters?

    What do we do when we are supposed to inherit a far too big throne for who we are and that our mother has been stuck in the transport's strikes for the past 10 years?

    What do we do when our goddaughter doesn't want to go to the ball and she doesn't want you to do magic anymore?

     

    After two years with no possibility of showcasing our work, our amateur groups finally go back to the stage with France's current most successful playwright !

    “British theatre would be completely stymied without tiny, under-resourced venues such as CPT, which are a critical part of the theatre ecology.”
