About this show

The Theatre School at DePaul University in conjunction with PLAYING FRENCH presents Rooms, by Philippe Minyana, translated by Danny Rohart, directed by John Jenkins. Largely a record of the author's experiences growing up in an industrial French suburb where most residents are employed by a Peugeot factory, this contemporary play features six characters each telling their stories alone in a room. Using experimental language -- a language without grammar and vocal rests -- Minyana probes the depths of individual insecurity with a deftness that is ironic, entertaining and highly provocative. A post-show discussion with the cast follows the performance on Thursday, October 21. The performance on Tuesday, October 26 will be followed by a Q&A session with the playwright, Philippe Minyana.
