Infidèles : Promenades (Noëlle Renaude) and Le Système Ribadier (Georges Feydeau), 2016


Two perspectives on the classic French theme of infidelity: Renaude’s sparse, wry unravelling of conflict and complication is juxtaposed with Feydeau’s frenetic vaudeville business of cover-up and disclosure. 

Promenades (Noëlle Renaude) follows the fall (and rise?) of Parisian businessman Bob, from a life of extramarital escapades to solitude and a mysterious beyond. Le Système Ribadier sees Eugène Ribadier's serial infidelity, enabled by the system of hypnotism he uses on his wife Angèle, uncovered by a lovelorn Aristide Thommereux with farcical consequences involving Ribadier's lover's cuckold Savinet.
