The French premiere of Austrian playwright Peter Handke’s play brought together an impressive cast. It marked another collaboration between Yves Saint Laurent and the director Claude Régy, who brought many contemporary authors to the French stage (including Marguerite Duras, Nathalie Sarraute, Harold Pinter, and Jon Fosse).
