A Timeless Tale of Friendship and Betrayal Performed In French with Projected English Subtitles
Inconnu à Cette Adresse is based on the book Address Unknown, written by Kathrine Kressmann Taylor. The novel was published just before the outbreak of World War 2, written as a series of letters between a Jewish art dealer living in San Francisco and his business partner, who had returned to Germany in 1932. It is credited with exposing, early on, the dangers of Nazism to the American public. The work was adapted for the stage by Michèle Levy-Bram.
Inconnu à Cette Adresse brings Kathrine Kressmann Taylor’s classic pre-war text, Address Unknown, back to life. In her book, an international literary sensation and social phenomenon, a successful art dealer returns to his native Germany, maintaining a correspondence with his close Jewish friend back in America. The captivating text is masterfully composed of nineteen tragic letters. Against a backdrop of rising nationalism, allegiances become distorted beyond recognition. The stage adaptation, Inconnu à Cette Adresse, was awarded the 2013 Globes de Cristal Best Theatre Play of the Year.
