Françoise by Sagan - A Play Featuring Caroline Loeb Tickets
Françoise by Sagan
Featuring Caroline Loeb
New York Premiere
Monday, November 6 at 7:30pm
Florence Gould Hall Theater
Presented by French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)
In this touching and audacious stage monologue, actress Caroline Loeb conveys the raw intensity and personal philosophies of famed French writer Françoise Sagan, who rocked French culture beginning at age 18 with her (then) scandalous 1954 novel Bonjour Tristesse. Sagan—a nom de plume taken from Proust—went on to a long and eventful career, including novels, plays, screenplays, and bold commentary on social issues.
This compelling and often humorous production is based on Caroline Loeb’s adaptation of Je ne renie rien, a published collection of Sagan’s candid interviews across four decades.
