Americans Zack and Abby are bright, young and recently married. He’s a doctor combatting infant disease. She’s an actress, who also teaches yoga. It’s just before Christmas and they’re living the expat high life in bohemian Belleville, Paris.
It’s all a little too perfect.
Belleville was first produced at Yale Repertory Theatre in 2011, and transferred to New York Theatre Workshop in 2013. The play received its UK premiere at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in 2017, in a production directed by Michael Longhurst.
Amy Herzog’s other plays include Mary Jane, Pulitzer Prize finalist 4000 Miles, After the Revolution and The Great God Pan.
