Tuesdays at Tesco's

English text by Matthew Hurt & Sarah Vermande

Emmanuel Darley

A touching one-person play about a person’s true identity, the first English-language adaptation of Emmanuel Darley’s hit play, Le Mardi à Monoprix.

Every Tuesday, Pauline loyally spends the day with her father, tidies his home, does his ironing. Then they go to Tesco. Every Tuesday.

All eyes are on Pauline when they go shopping. Before she became Pauline, her name was Paul. And to her father she remains Paul, despite all appearances to the contrary.

Emmanuel Darley's French-language play, Le Mardi à Monoprix, was a critical and commercial hit when it premiered in Paris in 2009, and went on to be nominated for a Molière, France’s national theatre awards.

Profoundly moving... brave, strong, authoritative, and full of a frustrated sweetness that pierces the heart -  Scotsman
