"Edgard et sa Bonne" (Labiche) - Manchester, 22-23 March. Performed by students of the University of Manchester.
Cosseted mummy’s boy Edgard realises the time has come to contract an advantageous marriage… all that stands in the way is his ongoing dalliance with the housemaid, who has no intention of finding herself jilted! A mordant satire of class, money and sexual mores, Labiche’s sparkling comedy remains utterly contemporary and utterly hilarious.

Performed by students of the University of Manchester.

Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 March, 8pm at Contact, Oxford Road, Manchester
Tickets £8/£5

University of Manchester French Studies présente : Eugène Labiche, "Edgard et sa bonne".

"Edgard et sa Bonne" (Labiche) - Manchester, 22-23 March. Performed by students of the University of Manchester.
Edgard, jeune bourgeois choyé par maman, accepte le mariage respectable que celle-ci lui propose... le seul obstacle étant sa liaison de longue date avec sa bonne, qui n’a malheureusement pas la moindre intention de lâcher prise !

S’ensuit une comédie pétillante qui satirise les mœurs d’une bourgeoisie hypocrite et ridicule, et qui reste on ne peut plus d’actualité.

Joué par des étudiants de l’University of Manchester

Mardi 22, mercredi 23 mars, 20.00h à Contact Theatre, Oxford Road, Manchester
