Based on the novel by Édouard Louis.

On Christmas night, Édouard meets Reda, a man with an Algerian background, and they end up in the former’s apartment. However, things soon take a turn for the worse.

In his autobiographical novella, young French author Édouard Louis, internationally acclaimed for his powerful writing, draws on an extremely traumatic night he experienced and exposes the brutality that pervades contemporary society. A best-seller across Europe, this remarkable commentary on class hatred, homophobia, xenophobia and self-loathing is now adapted for the stage by Schaubühne. German director Thomas Ostermeier, a favourite among Greek theatre goers, returns to the Athens Festival five years after his last performance at Peiraios 260 (The Little Foxes, 2015) with this sensational, gripping performance that shocked and thrilled audiences around the world thanks to is ingenuity and the cast’s exceptional performances.
