★★★★ “Utterly, brilliantly improbable.” — The Guardian, London

In the U.S. premiere of Caroline Guiela Nguyen‘s Fraternity, A Fantastic Tale, an ensemble cast of professional and amateur actors, ages 16 to 79, take audiences on a fantastic voyage. In a freak incident, part of the human race disappears from the planet. Those who remain try to heal and make sense of the unexpected loss; now navigating their world without partners, parents and friends.

Co-Presented with FIAF as part of the Crossing The Line Festival

3 hours including a 20 minute intermission. Performed in French, Arabic, Vietnamese, and English with supertitles.

Caroline Guiela Nguyen is a French author, playwright, film and theatre director. Nguyen invites non-professional or professional actors from different social, geographical, cultural and spiritual backgrounds to take part in her creations, so that worlds meet and audiences discover a common ground. Nguyen has been an associate artist at the Odéon-Théâtre de l’Europe since 2016.
