Written by Jean-Luc Lagarce, France's most popular playwright when he died of AIDS at the age of 38 in 1995, Rules of Good Manners in the Modern World is a satire of middle class niceties -- with no story, no characters and no dramatic conflict. It's a modernist monologue transformed into a postmodernist performance piece.

Directed by Zeljko Djukic, artistic director of The Utopian Theatre Asylum (TUTA).
