In Yasmina Reza’s Life x 3 Henri and Sonia are putting their son to bed when Hubert and Ines arrive for dinner, a day earlier than expected. As the evening degenerates the action blends cruel observations with high comedy in a hilarious and poignant examination of our most personal intimacies and private longings.
The twist in the tale is this disastrous dinner party is played out three times, with subtle differences, Thus the audience witness three versions of the same socially hapless evening in which the characters change subtly each time, providing dramatically different outcomes over the course of the evening.
The play provides a fascinating insight into how our realities can be altered by nuances of language and our subsequent reactions. A deliciously dark comedy performed by The Dulwich Players.
