A classic psychological thriller from one of France’s most renowned authors. The novella L’amante Anglaise is based upon a true event; it is a poignant and emotionally powerful portrait of lost passion and an extraordinary inner life.
A brutal murder is committed in a small town in France. The dismembered corpse is dropped from a railway viaduct onto passing trains below…all except the head. This modern classic psychological thriller from celebrated French author Marguerite Duras, takes you right inside the heart and mind of the perpetrator and is a fascinating and compelling true crime story.
Over the course of the drama, Pierre and Claire Lannes effortlessly reveal the beauty and brutality of their inner selves and create a painstaking portrait
of lost passion. Performed and directed exquisitely, L’amante Anglaise is a rare and unmissable work of theatre, pure and simple. After four sold out Melbourne seasons this is an edge of your seat drama.
“an engrossing theatrical experience with assured acting and direction. Duras should be delighted.” — Herald Sun
“Both actors are utterly assured in this absorbing, perversely humorous, and impressively still production.” — Australian Book Review
