Put on a show on a hot topic, yes. But when it's done well, it's even better! In the Réjane room of the Théâtre de Paris , four brilliant actors swing the sharp lines of Fred Proust around the theme of assisted reproduction . A modern and funny fable that hits the mark against a background of social inequalities.

Looser in front of the eternal, his life is turned upside down when he accepts to invite Bastien to dinner, an old friend who has disappeared from the radar (odieuux Arnaud Gidoin ) as rich as he is unpleasant, and his wife ( Juliette Meyniac ).

If he refuses straight away, his interested partner pushes him to negotiate the case for a job in his advertising box.

Tracked down by his girlfriend, the poor man sets out to make all the bad life choices from start to finish, in a kind of gear that he could yet get out of in a snap of his fingers (and of the door). Should we submit to more powerful than ourselves by resignation or rebel to impose our values? It would seem that the strongest reason is always the best. We will show it later ...
