Francophone Theatre Lecture
  • Written by Emma Haché
  • Produced by Théâtre du Vent debout

Johnny is about denial—a profound denial that isolates a couple and freezes the partners in time. A time they try to hold back, but that forces them in spite of themselves to the breaking point. Johnny is Juliette and Bernard’s adopted son. Johnny is also the abyss of love that gradually drives them apart. Moving backwards, the play retraces the path of this denial and the couple’s transformation.

With Johnny, Emma Haché continues the reflection she began with L’Intimité, Wolfe et Exercices de l’oubli, about a couple that evolves in time and memory.

Johnny is presented with the collaboration of the Centre des auteurs dramatiques (CEAD).
