THE LESTER MCNUTT

COMPANY

 

 

The Company was founded in 1987 by Régis Barale and Lester McNutt. The first production was a stage adaptation
of Dostoievski's CRIME AND PUNISHMENT at the Association France-URSS, in Paris, and was directed by Arielle Dervieu.
The cast included: Marianne Giraud (Sonia), Régis Barale (Raskolnikov), Lester McNutt (Porphyre), Olivier de
Lasteyrie (Razoumikhine). Good reviews enabled a rerun for a couple more months at the Théâtre Montorgueuil, with Alexandra Royan (Sonia) and Michel Grynberg (Razoumikhine).
FABULEUX LAFONTAINE, the Company's second production, included twelve fables by La Fontaine stitched together
to make up a homogeneous narrative. This was followed by THE CREDITORS, by Stindberg. Both productions were directed by Christophe Galant.
 
 
 
 
 
 
After seven years of inactivity, the Company staged COURTELINADES in 1995, a series of short plays by George
Courteline. The project was directed by Lester McNutt and Arielle Dervieu, and sponsored by the Municipal Theater of Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, under the management of Daniel Royan. In 1997, the Company took part in the Auriebat Festival with Victor Haïm's CHAIR AMOUR.
 
2002 marked a turning point for the Company, with the production of foreign plays in the original language: LONG
DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT, by Eugene O'Neill (in English), LA RONDE, by Arthur Schnitzler (in German), BUS STOP,
by William Inge (in English), and TREEMONISHA, by Scott Joplin (in English). The latter was the Company's very first musical experience.
