by CHARLOTTE DELBO
Adaptation of the play « Who will carry the word? »
The 2013 French National Celebration commemorates the 100th birthday of the author, playwright and member of the Resistance, Charlotte Delbo (1913-1985).
The silhouettes of three actresses in an immaculate circle, shadows of women in a concentration camp of Auschwitz. In the dense and luminous language of Charlotte, they tell the story of tragedy, but also the miracles of solidarity. Charlotte Delbo recounts history through a testimony devoid of hate and rich in hope. The emotions are restrained, full of intensity; the words, expressed from the heart with beauty and truth.

"A Must See Performance!"
FRANCE INTER, French Public Broadcasting”
"Prospero Miranda Theatre Company pays a magnificent tribute to Charlotte Delbo. Being a woman of the theatre, she would have loved the sobriety of the staging as well as the incredible performances by the talented actresses. They form a sensitive and moving setting to a harsh and deeply moving text. We are not in Auschwitz any more but rather in all the places in world where men and women are denied of their humanity. "
