Katie Mitchell directs this highlight of the 2018 EIF

The Edinburgh International Festival doesn't look to be likely to enjoy a vintage year in 2018, but this certainly looks pretty special: the great avant-garde director Katie Mitchell adapts a 1982 French psychological thriller about an unnamed man who hires a woman to spend several weeks with him in a hotel by the sea, hoping to experience love. The text is by Alice Birch, and the production stars acclaimed French actors Laetitia Dosch and Irène Jacob.
