L´insomnie du Prince de Conti (The insomnia of Prince Conti)
Free adaptation of the "Treaty about comedy and shows" by Armand de Bourbon, Prince de Conti
Directed by: Gabriel Debray
Acting: Vincent Viotti
In the 19th century, Armand de Bourbon, Prince de Conti, after having been the first protector of Molière, became one of the most violent adversaries of theatre and specially of comedy.
"Gabriel Debray conceived, with Vincent Viotti, the "Insomnia of Prince de Conti" where, approaching his death, le powerful prince broods over his hatred of shows, remembering however scenes from Molière, that he cannot avoid admiring. Great feverish interpretation by Viotti. A beautiful moment which could find its place everywhere, where people wonder about theatre"
