The Devil in the Flesh, the flapping wings of the soul and the labours of love in certain corners…, Under the Roofs of Paris she is at home the multi-faceted world of love and passion. A scandalous French novel combined with the heartfelt expressions of Simone de Beauvoir – interwoven through drama and French song.

Under the Roofs of Paris she is at home, the multi-faceted world of love and passion. About the love-pact of Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre’s merciless, but “open” relationship; a rollercoaster of emotions which only stops at the end of a lifetime. This is the debut work of a seventeen year old student describing his passion for Amour Fou in the company of a soldier’s bride during the time of the First World War. It was a scandalous novel of its time which progressed to one of the most successful books of the 20th Century.

A melodious evening staged in play reading and singing lyrics by Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsbourg, Carla Bruni, and others.
