For the first time, the Princess Grace Theatre is hosting a creative residency with comedian and director Thomas Le Douarec, who chose to adapt Dostoevsky’s The Idiot. He will present it in preview on Monday, May 7, at 8:30 pm. The play will then be performed in Avignon and Paris.
Rehearsal sessions will be open to the public on Thursday, May 3, and Friday, May 4, between 4 pm and 6 pm, with free access. Theatregoers will be able to stay for as long as they wish, provided they do not disturb the actors in their work.

Finally, following the success of the Portrait of Dorian Gray last season, the troupe will perform the play in English on Tuesday, May 8, at 8:30 pm, also at the Princess Grace Theatre.
