Me, Myself and Mum (Les Garcons et Guillaume, a table)

directed by Guillaume Gallienne in French

Opening Night Presentation!

“A delightfully self-deprecating crowdpleaser adapted from Guillaume Gallienne’s well-received one-man show, Me, Myself and Mum offers a playful twist on the typical coming-out narrative, in which an effeminate young man is the last to realize what everyone around him has already decided. Gallienne, who belongs to the country’s prestigious Comedie-Francaise acting troupe, milks his awkward upbringing for big laughs, playing the roles of both his younger self and his elegant if somewhat imperious mother (in drag, of course).” —Variety
