World premiere -- 14th Street Playhouse, Atlanta: January 24-27, 2008
The world premiere of a new play commissioned by Théâtre du Rêve from Belgian playwright Olivier Coyette about the ever-changing, dynamic relationship between Europe and the US and our ever-challenged identities. The play attempts to show how the United States inspire dreams across the world as much as we aggravate and sometimes, move others. The title of the play, which is also a song by Jacques Brel, sheds light on the direction of our movements: America suffers. The play revolves around the relationship between Americans and French, revealing stereotypes and prejudices along the way. Through comical situations and a wonderful sense of humor, Olivier Coyette creatively reiterates the theme that "you can’t live with them, you can’t live without them."
