The Parisian theatre troupe Theatre du Rond Point crosses the Atlantic to present their spirit and their work in Atlanta with the critically acclaimed play, “Me too, I’m Catherine Deneuve,” written by French playwright Pierre Notte, an associate author and playwright at the Theatre du Rond-Point in Paris. In 2006 Notte was nominated for the Molière award for “Best Playwright” and was named “Best New Theater Talent” by the French Association of Theater Authors and Composers (SACD).

“Me too, I’m Catherine Deneuve” will be produced in Chicago with the Trap Door Theater, whose mission is to bring international works to the United States and to enrich global artistic cultural understanding. The troupe will collaborate with emerging director Valery Warnotte, who directs the Compagnie L’Intervention in Paris and has worked extensively throughout Paris, Belgium and, recently, the United States.

“Me too, I’m Catherine Deneuve” is an imaginative and grotesque family drama that asks the audience to explore, along side the characters, the potent relationship between self-definition and self-determination. The piece has been performed in major cities around the world, and it 2006 it received the Molière award for “Best Private Theatre Production.”
