Archives - The Balcony

by Jean Genet
Translated by Bernard Frechtman

Directed by Jan Sayer

Saturday 28th November – Saturday 5th December 1981 in the Auditorium

Genet, leading practitioner of the theatre of the perverse, shows us, in this intensely theatrical play, the inverted actions of characters trying desperately to fantasise themselves out of the real world only to be caught up in an all too real revolution. Or is the revolution itself a fantasy?
