French Performances: Columbia Museum of Art

Friday, February 10, 2012 at 7:00pm and Sunday, February 12, 2012 at 2:00pm

The “théâtre de boulevard” flourished in Parisian commercial theatres from the 1890s through the 1920s and featured light comic fare about contemporary bourgeois society. Plots were intricate but inconsequential, adultery and domestic squabbles, those staples of French farce, were rampant. The Club Théâtre of the Alliance Française of Columbia performs two sketches and a one-act play by two of the best-known boulevard playwrights: Georges Courteline’s Le commissaire est bon enfant, about an efficient police commissioner whose patience is tried by a string of petitioners, and Les Boulingrin, a cautionary tale about the perils of sponging off your acquaintances, and Georges Feydeau’s Hortense a dit: «Je m’en fous!», an afternoon in the life of a long-suffering dentist whose domestic trials push him over the edge. Better than a snootful of nitrous oxide!

The story opens very early in the morning at the home of Grandma, Hattie Mae. She’s allowed her daughter, Rose and husband, Frank to move in with her along with their son. The family, who has fallen on hard times, is alarmed by an early morning phone call. It’s the local bank giving the family three days to pay the mortgage or be evicted. Frank, the man of the house, has been out of a job for months and his wife Rose has been supporting the family as a maid for a wealthy real estate giant. Frank finally gets a break when a job is offered as a handyman at the Willis estate. But longtime butler, Floyd, boldly expresses that it won’t be long before wealthy wife, Diane, will scheme to get her married paws into Frank. Back at grandma Hattie’s, things are slowly falling apart as she’s consumed with the thought of losing the house she’s been in for thirty years. On top of that, she’s worried about her grandson Wally whose running the streets at odd hours of the night. Tyler Perry’s, “The Haves and The Have Nots” is told with love, honor, and brutal truth. It will leave you crying, laughing, and wanting a better life for you and for those who may be less fortunate. Visit The Township’s website for more info.
