Despite anticipating being lost while attempting to find the theatre, Google Maps didn't steer me wrong and I arrived fairly early, only to join the queue of the other early arrivals. I felt a bit out of place, not only because my colleague and I were seemingly the only non-French people there, but also because most of the rest of the audience seemed to be at least 30 years older than us.
Without the grand gesture of a rising curtain, the play began, as each of the four actors came onto the stage, asking each other the same single question over and over: "How are you?" Perhaps this play wouldn't be so difficult to be understand after all...
