About This Show

Direct from a critically acclaimed, sell-out runs in London and Dublin Souvenir spins off from Marcel Proust’s In Remembrance of Things Past, to create a giddy, freewheeling exploration of memory, jealousy and time. In the centenary year of the novel’s publication, we join an aging Marcel as he struggles to understand the man he was. Using language, music and magic, to help him get to grips with what Proust meant when he said, “it’s better to dream your life than to live it.”

Borrowing (stealing?) from a range of other literary masters including T S Eliot, Charlie Kaufman, Beyoncé Knowles and Orson Welles, Souvenir turns the longest French book ever written into a 56-minute theatre show.
