Pleasure and Pain

A Night With French Writer Guy De Maupassant.

Fri 9 Jun 2017

Pleasure and Pain


Produced and presented by Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

Hosted by The Cockpit

An evening with French writer Guy de Maupassant, charting his tragic journey from aspiring writer into the darkness of drug addiction and madness.

Maupassant's perfectly crafted short stories explore social and political upheaval and relationships where men and women spar and dance their way through tales of love, sex, personal tragedy and the need to belong.  Playful and funny, unsettling and brutal, Mark Thomson's adaptation of Maupassant's stories conjures up a florid and vivid world that reflects Maupassant's own life and imagination.

Originally produced by Mark Thomson 14 years ago for the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow.

Friday 9th June - 7pm
