Nora’s Playhouse presents a stage reading of…

FRANÇOISE

By Suzanne Trauth

Directed by Caroline Reddick Lawson

Françoise Bollinger is eighty and ill. Confronted with her mortality, she is frightened to die with a terrible sin on her conscience. While grappling with her past to find forgiveness for her actions, she relives the summer of 1944 in Nice, France. Françoise remembers studying dance with one of Isadora Duncan’s protégées; falling in love with Christian, a young German soldier, sharing his passion for the poetry of Rilke and sharing her passion for dance. Now sixty years later, as she faces the end of her life, Françoise conjures up Christian, Isadora Duncan, and a younger version of herself, struggling to navigate between the two worlds of past and present. A compassionate doctor and troubled granddaughter are her only companions as she searches for the redemption she needs before dying.
