“Les Mouches” French Play

Some of our year 12 French students had a great opportunity to see the play “Les Mouches” by J-P Sartre at The Bunker theatre in London. «It’s the tragedy of liberty against the tragedy of fatality» says Sartre.

The students discovered that “The Flies” are an image, a symbol of several ideas: of remorse, guilt, fear and fate. It is an adaptation of the Greek myth of Electra, a tale of liberty but with a Sartrian bloody edge. What was really well appreciated by the girls was the director’s modern production and, of course, the live music of the Mauritian rock band.
