Original Playwright - Jean-Paul Sartre

Synopsis:

Written by the existentialist, French philosopher, Jean-Paul Sartre, this rarely performed play is set during the second world war in a fictional country. The tension and focus are on the main character, Hugo Barine, who has joined Illyria's Proletarian Party to forget his past. In order to gain acceptance and to escape the label of a mere bourgeois intellectual, he begs the leaders of his faction to allow him to take direct action - to become an assassin. His target will be the Party leader, Hoederer who has agreed to negotiate deals with the Fascist leaders of Illyria to get his hands dirty for the party's political survival. The worlds of politics and philosophy collide as Hugo struggles to find the psychological moment. Tortured by his own indecision and self-loathing, he finds comfort and purpose from a most unlikely source. The Assassin highlights our own fragile world order where political fundamentalism lead to acts of terror against fellow human beings and where faith is not what some die for, but what they are prepared to kill for.

Notes:

Original Playwright - Jean-Paul Sartre. Adapted from the play by Alexandre Dumas

Synopsis:

This cross-century collaboration is a romance, redolent with greasepaint and overflowing with the life of the theatre. Kean, the woman iscr, drinker and debtor, postures through life, never certain where life ends and acting begins. His private life is a public performance, a tragic-comedy about a man with an insatiable appetite for romantic adventure, an ego as big as a stage and an inability to rescue himself from jeopardy. Sartre's colourful play is a passionate, sexy, funny, full-blooded experience for anyone who loves Shakespeare, the theatre and great adventure.

Synopsis:

Adrian Noble directs Sir Antony Sher as Edmund Kean, considered the greatest classical actor of the 19th century. Drawn loosely from life, Jean-Paul Sartre's play shows Kean as a pretender of the higest order with a private life like a public performance. He is a man with an insatiable appetite for romantic adventure, an ego as big as a stage and an inability to rescue himself from jeopardy. ..

Original Playwright - Jean-Paul Sartre. Adapted by Hendrick Elstein and Sam O'Sullivan

Synopsis:

France, July 1944: the pro-Nazi Vichy government is still in power. An attic in an abandoned school holds six young resistance fighters waiting for their ordered execution. A floor below, their three executioners face imminent death from the approaching Allied forces. Neither side will escape. But this isn't about life and death, it's about winning the game. Written by Jean-Paul Sartre, one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century, Men Without Shadows is a rarely performed gem that will challenge the audience to consider what people are capable of once stripped of the things that make them human - freedom, dignity, even hope.

Original Playwright - Jean-Paul Sartre

Synopsis:

Three people find themselves in Hell after a lifetime of living badly. Inez and Estelle are sexual predators - Estelle heterosexual and Inez not. Cradeau is a self-regarding prig and a coward. (Estelle is in addition hopelessly vain. It is a particular feature of her Hell that there are no mirrors.). For the three of them, Hell is a room in a bad hotel, with dusty Swedish-modern furnishings. They quickly get down to the business of ferreting out each other's sins, thus revealing the acts which have landed them in Hell. ('They've made a saving in their hired help,'Inez observes. 'Each of us is the torturer of the other two.') Armed with this information, they each use it as a club to achieve their impossible objectives: Estelle, to win the love of Cradeau; Inez, to win the love of Estelle; and Cradeau, to lie down in silence with a handkerchief over his face. When they are not so employed they tune in to see how they are regarded, post mortem, in life. It is invariably a disappointment. 'Hell is other people,'Cradeau observes famously at the end of the play, but he is wrong. Hell is these other people who are so fatuous and obnoxious that they would make Mother Therese mutter and curse, and St. Francis of Assisi bang his head against the wall. There are plenty of people, including Sartre himself, who would be swell company throughout eternity, even in a bad hotel room.

Original Playwright - Jean-Paul Sartre

Synopsis:

When Jean-Paul Sartre's play, "Les Mains Sales," was first seen in Britain in 1948, it was called "Crime Passionel" and set in an East European country called Illythia, from which the occupying Germans were retreating as the Soviet Union advanced. The play at the Almeida is called The Novice and is adapted and directed by Richard Eyre from "Les Mains Sales." In his version, the time is the present and the country is neither named nor located, though a reference to knee-capping brings its local associations; But political assassination is still with us, as is the possibility that political ideas in advance of their time can be fatal. The Revolutionary Party is led by Hoederer, who plans to form a coalition with the Royalists and liberals. In consequence the party hasdecided that he must be killed and Hugo, his secretary, who has abandoned his wealthy family to join the party, is ordered to shoot him. It is a tale thrillingly told, a serious spellbinder on public and private levels about revolutionary ethics and an unloved social misfit who longs to make an impact on his time but who, like Hamlet, dithers his way to disaster, turning what should have been a powerful political statement into an act of private vengeance. For Hugo, is unloved, particularly by his upper-class wife, Jessica. She is invested with a cool, teasing, taunting contempt and, because she cannot take Hugo seriously, cannot believe in his gun as a serious instrument of terror. She is, in fact, fascinated by Hoederer, finally killed by Hugo in a confusion of sexual jealousy, political principle and the sheer need of an ineffectual rich kid to justify himself by an action ostensibly on behalf of the poor.
David Nathan, Jewish Chronicle
