The Flies – Les Mouches, by Jean-Paul Sartre.
A play with a Live Rock band !
More info bellow… ⬇️
Double Offie nominated in 2018, Exchange Theatre are celebrating their first decade of work !
Jean-Paul Sartre’s rebellious and highly political thriller, The Flies, re-imagines the Greek tragedy of Electra and Orestes, exploring the complexities of human values in a period of political turbulence.
A company priding themselves in their international and multi-cultural heritage, Exchange Theatre’s The Flies will be performed alternately in French and English in tribute to Sartre’s roots, and the 1943 play’s origins as a political allegory. Directed by David Furlong, Exchange Theatre’s multidisciplinary and multimedia production of The Flies returns in 2019, as topical and poignant as ever.
