Les Baladins return to Marlow

Following on from the great success of our spring production, The Importance of Being Earnest, Marlow Players warmly invite you to join us as we, once again, host our wonderful fellow actors from Marly-le-Roi, Les Baladins.

Les Baladins, will be performing La Nonna originally written by prominent Argentinian playwright and theatre director Robert Cossa.

The Chicago Reader writes of the play “La Nonna is a remarkable structural and conceptual achievement. The play is beautifully constructed in the tradition of classic farce: everything relates to a central dramatic purpose, and each scene ups the level of frustration and the blood pressure of the characters exponentially” so one not to be missed.

Les Baladins are one of the finest amateur dramatic groups in France and have on several occasions won Le Masque d’Or. They work at the Maison Jean Vilar in Marly-le-Roi, a superbly equipped community theatre and workshop. The Marlow Players and Les Baladins have been exchanging productions for more than fifty years, and we last took A bunch of Amateurs across the water in 2023.

The play, will be performed in French with a full English synopsis provided, offering the audience an opportunity to fully enjoy the production.

We continue to enjoy the wonderful staging and equipment of Great Marlow School with its fully equipped theatre stage and lighting.

Tickets are available from our online box office.
