Comedy “Jules et Marcel” in Théâtre des Muses
May 16 - May 19Free
Comedy “Jules et Marcel”, based on letters by Raimu and Marcel Pagnol from Thursday 16 to Sunday 19 May 2019, Théâtre des Muses.
It all began in 1929 when a certain Marcel Pagnol, an unknown young author from provincial France, knocked timidly on the door to the dressing room of Jules Muraire, otherwise known as “Raimu”, the rising star of the French theatre, to offer him the manuscript of a play entitled “Marius”… Jules and Marcel are brought back to life through their correspondence, discovered in the family archives. Their delightfully ferocious epistolary jousts offer an insight into the minds of these two giant figures, from a more human perspective.
