World premiere of a new monologue written by Clément Hervieu-Leger that will open in France in November. Le Voyage en Uruguay, directed by Daniel San Pedro and performed by Guillaume Ravoire from the Compagnie des Petits-Champs, is the Odyssey-like story of a patriarch of Hervieu-Léger’s family who brought Norman cattle from across the sea in order to establish a livelihood in a new country. At heart a family history, it is also a story of how our personal heroes are made. Performances will take place on Thursday and Friday, October 9 and 10, at 8:00 p.m. in the Whitman College Theater on the Princeton University Campus. Performed in French. Duration: 75 minutes.

Admission is free but reservations are strongly recommended by sending an email to Subject Line: Festival.
