Michel just can’t get a break

The Eastside French Language Theatre & Improv Company, Les Seagulls, will present their third show, Florian Zeller’s Une heure de tranquillite, directed by Sebastien Plisson. former comedian at “La DBoussole” in San Francisco. Following last year’s Le Prènom, Tranquillité (Do Not Disturb) is the third show in the Seattle area produced by Les Seagulls. The cast consists of members of the French expat community: Jonathan Garcia, Melissa Kordahi, Katya Samoylenko, Jérôme Vasseur, Nicolas Moreau and Cédric Barnet.

“Just when Michel, an upper class snob and jazz fan, found a rare recording named “Me, Myself and I,” from renowned jazz musician, Niel Youart, he cancels every possible appointment to give himself just one hour of peace and quiet to listen to it. But, he doesn’t even get one tenth of the time he planned on, to listen to this masterpiece. That’s when literally everyone has to talk to him: his wife, his son, the plumber, his mistress, his best friend… Will he ever manage to listen to his treasured record?”

“This play will take you on a tumultuous journey as Michel tries everything he can, just to get one hour alone to listen to his newly discovered precious record. Along the way, the audience is forced to contemplate both sides of human nature, its good as well as its bad.” says Sebastian Plisson, director of Une heure de tranquillité

The performance will be in French; however, it is relatively easy contemporary French, so people who are not completely fluent in French should be able to understand it.
