With "Poussière" (Dust), a major contemporary writer, one of the most performed worldwide, is entering the repertoire of the Comédie-Française, becoming part of the tradition of authors who write for the Troupe.

This play features ten people, all elderly, six men and four women, along with one’s simple-minded daughter. For more than thirty years, they have been going on holidays to the same place, spending a week in the sun, in a hotel resort, in Spain or somewhere similar. If they had the means, they would go elsewhere but they come from a modest class and have no other way to escape their daily lives. Thus, they have been running into each other in this place for years, they know but don’t know each other. They never see each other anywhere else. Only here, once a year. For so long. For some this may be the last time. Others have probably already disappeared. This play is a symphony of farewells performed before our eyes. We are in a time that is no longer linear, only memory. What remains, what are the faces, the facts and the emotions that persist? “I couldn’t have written this text”, explains Lars Norén, “before reaching the age I am today. It’s a play about goodbyes and memories, on the last waves you pass through before the end. A beautiful and melancholy play that speaks only of life.” (Lars Noren)
