Three women meet near an isolated house in the cornfields. It is Bastille Day and the heat is oppressive, but no one is here to enjoy the fireworks. Stories emerge and overlap: the story of a son and his father; that of a mother, and successive daughters-in-law. Stories of malice and returns. In this seemingly simple yet brutal play, relationships adopt a force all of their own. A tour de force by one of France’s most celebrated authors.
