Monsieur Somebody, by Seamus Collins

A bilingual play, in French and English, by Seamus Collins

Directed by Joanne Allan

With Fiamma Bennett, Siva Nagapattinam Kasi, and Guillaume Paulette

Music by Mikayil Quenum


Theatraverse presents Monsieur Somebody, a bilingual (English/French) piece of absurd theatre, written by Northern Ireland’s Seamus Collins. This is a story so false it could almost be true.

Onstage, three characters incarcerated, incarnated by Lecoq-trained actors, recount their biggest cons.

Fiction and reality become one as they fantasise about their transgressions.

What’s the biggest lie you’ve ever told? The biggest secret you’ve ever kept?

Claude the fraud is a deliciously despicable Frenchman that we love to hate, hate to love… But who could possibly love Claude?

An absurdly comic tale of betrayal, barbiturates and a brew.

Is this his real life? Is this just treachery? Caught in a web of lies, no escape from reality.

At a time when political and humanitarian crises have become near-normal everyday horrors, Claude’s story is one of just how far a Nobody will go to become a Somebody.

 

One hour of dark comedy for audiences aged 12+
