By Marguerite Duras
Théâtre de l’Atelier, Paris
Directed by Didier Bezace
Two women in a pristine white room: one young, one old. “Who was she?” one asks the other, referring to a third who had long ago met a boy, fallen in love, and bore his child before promptly drowning herself.
Unfolding in the melancholic half-light of memory, Savannah Bay is a mesmerizing two-character drama by the revered French feminist writer Marguerite Duras (1914–1997)—author of The Lover and screenwriter of Hiroshima Mon Amour—whose works for the stage are rarely produced in the US. This Paris production, making its New York premiere, brings the play’s lyrical dialogue to life, creating an impressionistic tapestry of loneliness and connection in which two people form a special bond in the space left by forgetting.
