“…dramatizes the inhumanity of war with stunning eloquence.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“One of the brightest stars of San Francisco’s experimental theater scene.” —San Francisco Arts Monthly
“Director-translator Ben Yalom does us a huge favor by introducing French magical realist Fabrice Melquiot to our shores”— Time Out
“Extraordinary play”— Backstage

A haunting love story unfolds as a Christian falls in love with a Muslim during the war in

When it premiered France (2003), Le Diable en Partage was named both
“Best French Play of the Year” and “Theatrical Discovery of the Year” by the
National Critics’ Syndicate. Foolsfury delivers the first U.S. production
of a play by Fabrice Melquiot, one of the most celebrated contemporary
French playwrights and winner of the prestigious Prix Jean-Jacques
Gauthier from Le Figaro. A spellbinding spectacle, it is a unique and startling collision
of the troupe’s trademark vibrant physical style and the text’s remarkable blend of
expressionism, poetry, fantasy, and harsh, raw reality.

Featuring: Debórah Eliezer, Stephen Jacob, Brian Livingston, Ryan O’Donnell, Nora El Samahy*, Joseph William.

This project is produced in conjunction with Alliance Française and the Cultural services of the French Consulate, and supported by significant funding from The Creative Work Fund, Etants Donnés (the French-American Fund for the Performing Arts).
