Another Year, Another Christmas NYC
THIS IS THE NYC PRODUCTION SALES LINK
Fabled French novelist and playwright Marie Nimier's first play in the U.S., "Another Year, Another Christmas" (Noël revient tous les ans), translated by Dr. Peter Schulman and directed by Lindsay Arber, will be presented in NYC by the Haberdasher Theater company. Marie Nimier is one of France's beloved novelists, songwriters, childrens book writer, and screenwriters. She is known for her surreal and magical writings such as Sirène (Mermaid), and Les Inséparables (The Inseparable Ones), and for her daring plays. "Another Year, Another Christmas" was first performed in Paris at Le Théâtre du Rond-Point to sold out performances, but surprisingly none of her plays have been performed in the U.S. until now.
"Another Year, Another Christmas" explores each year, a mother, a son, and his current "girlfriend(s)" at the time of meeting for a Christmas dinner that reveals the familys dysfunction and hidden tragedies of loss and death. Despite the comedic mishaps that take place each year, the mother and son grow closer together and learn to appreciate their short time together on earth. Through Marie Nimier's inventive use of language and word play, "Another Year, Another Christmas" attempts to highlight the ways in which language can communicate deep emotions that are sometimes hidden within the veneer of formality and routine.
