1995 - José

Emmanuel Genvrin

First performed on October 25th 1995 at Jeumon, Saint Denis.

Written and directed by :Emmanuel Genvrin. A sequel to the first Noella written for the Marmay Jeumon Festival organised by the company. An extremely funny Arnaud Dormeuil in situations that were popular, funny and typically Reunionese. A children’s show that was on an adult level as well ! The Noella series could have continued, but future horizons were threatening and we didn’t want to take refuge or specialise in these economical, social shows. We decided to stop them.

The play

Noella frees her mother by making Grandma Kal fall in love with her tyrannical stepfather.
