Based on the book En finir avec Eddy Bellegueule by Édouard Louis
Adapted by Pamela Carter

BAM DEBUT

 

Édouard Louis was born into poverty in working-class France. He was bullied relentlessly for being gay. And he was utterly desperate to escape.

Written when he was just 21, Louis’ internationally acclaimed autobiographical novel The End of Eddy captures his deeply resonant coming-of-age story. Now, in this compelling and charismatic staging, we bear witness to his affecting reflections on youth, sexuality, class, power, and freedom.

This is a story for anyone who has ever felt like they didn’t fit in.

Part of a series of events celebrating Édouard Louis in collaboration with St. Ann’s Warehouse, which will present History of Violence during its 40th anniversary season.
