Max Gill’s modernized version of Arthur Schnitzler’s La Ronde , a modernized, gender-neutral version. A cast of four played the ten characters randomly selected onstage every night by a roulette wheel.
London, 2017. The disparate lives of the city’s inhabitants are thrown together by the caprice of desire and fate.
How does your desire define you?
With four actors to play the cast of ten and roles selected with a roulette, our LA RONDE embraces life’s game of chance and the blindness of desire and fortune.
This portrait of the human need for another boldly reimagines the infamous original to interrogate modern attitudes to gender, sexuality, and social status. With over three thousand different versions of the show, which story will you see?
LA RONDE distils the beating heart of London’s sexuality with verbatim testimonies from real life prostitutes, lovers, adulterers.
Where there is desire, there is power. Lust and the search for love bind us all.
