Monsieur X

Pierre Richard Mathilda May
17.11.2020 > 18.11.2020

Can one find refuge in solitude? Kindly old Monsieur X appears to live all by himself, enjoying his well-earned retirement in his apartment. But he is not as lonely as it seems. His furniture, utensils and memorabilia are talking to him; but they are not always friendly. Monsieur X has his head in the clouds, and reality and dream intertwine. This play is without words, but is all the more charming on that account, featuring as it does expressive body language à la Charlie Chaplin. Actor Pierre Richard beautifully takes the spectators on a journey into the fabulous world of Monsieur X.

In the press

Le Parisien

« Un univers poétique et surréaliste pour une savoureuse évasion. »

La Gazette du Théâtre

« Monsieur X c’est Pierre Richard, l’homme au nuage entre les dents, qui ramène à la surface du plateau toute notre enfance de spectateur, comme la nuit ramène sur nos têtes un édredon d’étoiles. »
