An exotic tale of remembered passion
In 1984 the great French novelist Marguerite Duras wrote the story of her own youth in Vietnam, a personal truth told in passionate, vivid fragments. These incandescent glimpses of remembrance became one of the most acclaimed and widely read books of modern French literature.
Now three of Scotland’s major performing arts companies are collaborating in theatre and dance to bring her story to the stage.
