JEAN-MARIE BESSET TU
MOURRAS BRÛLÉ EN PLACE DE GRÈVE
I worked on five plays by Jean-Marie Besset, a French
Parisian and trendy gay-leaning playwright. He touches at times very serious
social or cultural subjects but his tendency to bring in sexuality and
particularly a gay option that is yet some kind of second choice makes him see
the circumstantial side of life and not the existential or spiritual side of
His vision of Molière in the last play is typical: he did not capture the
frightening depth of an aging creative mind who needs some young stimulation
that cannot be more than titillation to refuel his creative inspiration.
Unluckily Besset saw jealousy in Molière where he should have since impatience.
