WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Transatlantic Liaison is Fabrice Rozié's powerful new play about French existentialist writer Simone de Beauvoir and her passionate, volatile love affair with American novelist Nelson Algren. Transatlantic Liaison provides insights into how Beauvoir forged her identity -- as an artist, intellectual and woman of passion. This new play is Beauvoir's story of love beyond conventions of marriage, or of adultery, sifting details from her published letters to Algren and her novel inspired by their relationship, The Mandarins. John McLean directs.
