    Le Dernier Repas: A Love Story

    Counter-Productions Theatre Company continues its 2017/2018 season with the world premiere of local playwright David Eliet’s“Le Dernier Repas: A Love Story”. The play follows two Frenchmen, Robert and Louis, sitting down for the lavish meal of their dreams. Set against the backdrop of the Holocaust, the two reminisce on lost love, family, friendship, and food. 

    “Le Dernier Repas was the result of ten years of writing about The Holocaust that started in 1994 when I met Magda Bednarova in Bratislava, Slovak Republic,” says playwright David Eliet, “She had saved the life of her then boyfriend, and her husband had saved 200 Jewish lives.”

    Director Rufus Qristofer Teixeira finds himself inspired by “the depth of connection between the two main characters which speaks to the power of friendship, compassion, and humanity in the face of horrifying events. It’s a lesson born of the time frame of the play but one that resonates loudly in the here and now.”

    “Le Dernier Repas: A Love Story” runs from March 22nd to the 25th at AS220’s Black Box Theatre. This production features Geoff Leatham as Robert, Ted Clement as Louis, and Derek Smith as Franz.
