The chamber stage of the Theater presents an eccentric story about two middle-aged sisters who are traveling around France on a stolen passenger bus.
“Two Little Ladies Head North” is one of the most popular plays written in France in the last decade. The author, who is a playwright, journalist, director and actor Pierre Notte managed to combine constant laughter and deep sadness in one formally comic text, combining features of a dashing road movie and psychological drama.
The Notte’s heroines are two not very young sisters who suddenly embark on a crazy journey all over France towards their homeland on the North. The reason for their trip is a sad one – the funerals of their mother, who recently died.
Two eccentric ladies traveling on a stolen huge bus find themselves in completely ridiculous places: in a theater and a morgue, at a police station and at a disco bar, rushing like a hurricane in front of stunned people. And on their way, they sort the things out, remember some old offences, approaching the real intimacy.
The performance is the St. Petersburg Golden Soffit Theatre Award Nominee.
