Paris Time: World Premiere
By Steven Peterson
A gripping and sophisticated drama that looks behind the headlines at anti-Semitism in today’s France. When Deborah, the wife of a successful American executive based in Paris, becomes an activist defending a young Jewish Frenchwoman, Charles gets caught in the corporate hot seat. Company policy demands him to withdraw from the political limelight or lose his career, but if he won’t get involved, he may lose his marriage. With everything on the line, this winner of theREP’s Next Act Play Summit, brings today’s issues right into our living rooms.
