A play for two women, Savannah Bay retraces the intense effort of dramatic speech through a character striving to remember her life and discern between reality and fiction. Marguerite Duras wrote Savannah Bay in 1982 for Madeleine Renaud who appeared in it in 1983. Savannah Bay celebrates the Barrault-Renaud union and creates a lasting memory of the burning passion for theater the couple shared with each other and the world. Marie-Christine Barrault, who happens to be Jean-Louis Barrault’s niece, is a major actress in both French cinema and film. She has worked with the most prestigious theatrical directors and made her entrance to cinema under the direction of Eric Rohmer in "Ma nuit chez Maud". She was nominated for an Oscar in 1976 as Best Actress for her role in "Cousin, Cousine" by Jean-Charles Tacchella. More here.
