From October 16th to 20th, the Theatre des Muses in Monaco will host the theater adaptation of Grégoire Delacourt’s bestseller, La Liste des mes envies. A one-woman show driven by the energy and fantasy of Lorette Goosse, who will give an exceptional performance in English.
There is no need to present Grégoire Delacourt’s novel La Liste des mes envies (published by Lattès), which has sold more than 450,000 copies in France alone and has been published in 27 countries. A novel already adapted several times to the theater and once in the cinema, by Didier Le Pêcheur with Mathilde Seigner and Marc Lavoine. Lorette Goosse is now adapting the work dubbed by the author himself. “When Lorette Goosse came to see me, I knew she was Jocelyne. The character was both mine and hers. She was going to enlighten, to reveal the one I had written under the light of comedy, facetiousness and, in the end, the immense tenderness of women. Lorette has long fought for this piece to exist, she believed it from the first day, she remained true to herself, until today,” he said.
Five performances in Monaco
La Liste des mes envies (The list of my desires) is the story of Jocelyne, the haberdasher who plays Euro Millions. And when she becomes a millionaire, she tells no one and sees her existence upset. Lorette Goosse has adapted it in her own way and interprets this character with good humor under the direction of Christian Dalimier. This funny and moving performance will be played at the Théâtre des Muses on Wednesday 16th, Thursday 17th, Friday 18th, and Saturday 19th at 8:30 pm and on Sunday 20th October at 4:30 pm. An additional date is scheduled on Sunday the 20th at 2:30 pm depending on the success of the play and especially, the date of October 16th will be interpreted in English under the title of The List of my Desires.
