translated by Christopher Hampton
Henri and Sonia have invited Hubert and Ines, for dinner. But the appointed evening finds Sonia is in her dressing-gown, their child screaming for a chocolate biscuit, Henri reacting badly to Hubert's casually barbed news and the immaculate Ines appalled to find a ladder in her stocking. Things could have gone better. And maybe they will... With characteristic perception and wit, Yasmina Reza (elegantly translated by Christopher Hampton) slices into her characters to reveal the inner truth about them and, perhaps, all of us.
Life x 3 in this translation premiered at the National Theatre, London, in December 2000.
