Marguerite Duras lived the last world war at the same time as the wife of a deported husband and a resistant, but also as a writer. This play is an adaptation of two texts from her book “La Douleur”, which are of course the first one of the book and also the one of Monsieur X alias Pierre Rabier. This second one is particulary striking. Pierre Rabier is a Gestapo agent and he is having a dangerous affair with Marguerite Duras. Obliged to see him to obtain intelligences which will help her resistance network.

Duras is suffering from the decisions of that cold-heart man, who is fascinated by French authors, but who will at the end let her alive.
The spectators are at the heart of a gripping unknown and disturbing narration.

Maud Andrieux is 34 years old and the director and actor of La Compagnie du Barrage. She works mainly on the texts of Marguerite Duras such as Un barrage contre le Pacifique, le Vice-consul or La Douleur. She was invited in October 2015 at the Rencontre Duras in Trouville where she presented L’Été 80 of the author on the occasion of the prizing ceremony Marguerite Duras à Bulle D’Ogier for her entire oeuvre/life. She performs in France and throughout the world for more than ten years, and spends her time between France and South Asia more particularily.
