Read Synopsis

Heralded by the New York Times as "thrillingly good," Belleville, the newest drama from acclaimed playwright Amy Herzog (4000 Miles, After the Revolution) and director Anne Kauffman (Detroit, This Wide Night), is a chilling, Hitchcockian, look at the limits of trust, truth, deception and dependency in a world where both love and loss can be pathological and cathartic. Of its 2011 premiere at Yale Repertory Theatre, Charles Isherwood of The New York Times wrote, Belleville "confirms [Herzog's] reputation as one of the brightest new talents in the theater." Abby and Zack - young, American and married - have abandoned the stability of a comfortable post-graduate life in the states for Belleville, a bustling, bohemian, multicultural neighborhood in Paris. In an attempt to build a life together away from family and friends, their passive-aggressive and aggressively passionate relationship is put to test after an awkward afternoon discovery, a landlord's ultimatum and a cracked toenail.
