Desperate Housemen is a crazy play in which three comedians review all the daily problems of a couple in a superb production by Caroline Cichoz and Thibault Segouin. The three well-known comedians, Jérôme Daran (Florence Foresti's leading author), Alexis Macquart, and Stéphane Murat all come from one-man shows and have a great synergy on stage. With the theatre piece Desperate Housemen, they have already seduced the French public with over 1,400 performances! 



After receiving a break-up letter from his girlfriend, Jérôme calls on his two best friends Alexis and Stéphane, both in a relationship, to find a solution to win her back. The three thirty-somethings, for whom life as a couple has not always been easy, offer us an offbeat evening with guaranteed laughs: this show will leave you asking for more!
