A man and a woman in a car-park outside a country restaurant. She, single mother and pharmaceutical technician Andrea, is still in the car. Her lover, glazing entrepreneur Boris, is trying to persuade her to get out – despite the faux pas he has just committed: mentioning the fact that this restaurant was recommended to him by his wife... »Bella Figura« explores the evening that follows this fatal mistake. A short while later, another couple enters the scene: Eric and Françoise, accompanied by Eric’s mother, Yvonne. It soon transpires that they are connected to the first couple in an unfortunate way. This play is almost entirely set in the open air, on a day which is drawing to a close. I have never told stories in my plays so it should come as no great surprise that this is still the case. Unless you consider the faltering, heaving fabric of life itself to be a story. (Yasmina Reza)
