An international best-seller, Maylis de Kerangal’s poetic medical masterpiece The Heart (Réparer les vivants) is a stirring race against time adapted, performed, and directed by French actor Emmanuel Noblet. This touching and sometimes amusing play tells the story of 19-year-old Simon’s tragic surfing accident and his organ donation to save another’s life.
The acclaimed production, which won the 2017 Molière Award for Solo Performance, has been described by Le Figaro as “absolutely remarkable… breathtaking and deeply moving theater that leads us to reflect on the most important questions we can ask ourselves.”
Don’t miss the special 300th performance of this award-winning play!
