Summary

He is a mediocre Don Juan, a failed sentimentalist who belongs to that group of persons who dream their life instead of living it. Ambitious but not daring, eager to experience rare emotions, he grumbles at the obstacles in his path, and when he does manage to be bold, gives up on getting to the finish line, held back by his shyness and pride. This ditherer would be curable if he did not take so much pleasure in his condition: he tastes his happiest moment when giving up giving up

Discovery of a young French author in Brussels

The Theatre du Park has suddenly discovered a fantastic play and a true playwright, only 25 years old.

In 3 short acts, Mr Jean Bernard-Luc has told us the very human and sensitive story of one of these charming and romantic dreamer.

From the beginning to the end, the action is led with an unceasing verve, where the most refined irony met the most delicate emotion.

Since " Jean de la Lune ", it'obvious, the great artist had never found a role which has made his personality lit in such a way.

He , as well as his fellows have been cheered quite a long time, they are all by the audience fantastic

The playwright has been called for with enthusiasm and given an ovation.
