"Jules et Marcel", based on letters by Raimu and Marcel PagnolFrom Thursday May 16 to Sunday May 19, 2019, Théâtre des Muses
Fred Achard, Gilles Azzopardi and Christian Guerin will be on stage performing in "Jules et Marcel", with direction by Marcel Pagnol.
It all began in 1929 when a certain Marcel Pagnol, an unknown young author from provincial France, knocked timidly on the door to the dressing room of Jules Muraire, otherwise known as "Raimu", the rising star of the French theater, to offer him the manuscript of a play entitled "Marius"...
Jules and Marcel are brought back to life through their correspondence, discovered in the family archives. Their delightfully ferocious epistolary jousts offer an insight into the minds of these two giant figures, from a more human perspective.
The plays lasts around 1 hour 20 minutes.
