Our Insiders' Article

Some things are best left unsaid...or is it the other way around? In The Lie, a modern comedy about fidelity in relationships, the characters - whether they know it or not - are constantly caught in a web of lies. Not only must they determine the truth, but they must decide whether or not they should tell it - or keep it - from the people they supposedly love the most.  Not even the audience knows who to trust!


The play focuses on two married couples - Alice and Paul, and Michel and Laurence. One day, Alice sees one of her friend’s husbands out with another woman, but she doesn’t know whether or not she should tell her friend what she saw. Enter Paul, Alice’s husband, who tries to convince Alice that the best thing to do is to hide the truth. Is Paul just trying to defend his friend, or does he actually think that lying is the solution? Is he perhaps also hiding something? The play continues in this manner, all of the characters struggling to conceal their own secrets, to salvage their own relationships, and to trap each other in their lies. If you’re in the audience, you’ll have to figure out the truth for yourself, unless you have your own hidden agenda...


One thing’s for sure: if you see The Lie, you will be treated to some excellent performances by first-rate French actors. Pierre Arditi, one of the most famous and successful French actors, plays Paul, so you’ll definitely want to do some name-dropping at the next cocktail party you attend. What’s more is that his his real-life wife, Evelyne Bouix, plays Alice, his on-stage wife! Together, the two actors expertly portray the dynamic of a troubled married couple, which makes the play all the more relatable and authentic.


Fascinated by Paris and what it had to offer, the English King Edward VII decided to contribute to Parisian life by opening a performance hall there in the early 20th century. At the time, the building housed a cinema, but it was soon converted into a theatre bearing the King’s own name, becoming a place where French locals could discover Anglo-Saxon works. Today, the Theatre Edouard VII continues to offer an incredibly diverse repertoire, achieving a balance between classical plays and modern texts. Beautiful inside and out, the theater will take you back in time and completely immerse you in French culture.


Thanks to a new, innovative surtitling system developed by Theatre in Paris, you won’t have to worry about not being able to follow this intricate plot. For your viewing (and understanding) pleasure, English surtitles will be projected onto a screen above the stage, and you’re guaranteed to be in seats that provide a good view of the text. You will also receive a pre-show introduction from an English-speaking host, who will explain how the surtitles work and how you can make the most of them as you watch the show. You won’t want to miss your chance to really experience French theater like a local would!
