The theatre company “Les Apprentis Comediens”, created by Yasmina Vally in 2011, presents their adaptation of “Le Père Noël est une ordure” at the Alliance Francaise de Singapour on the 8 & 9 April 2022.
Pierre, a stuffy, self-righteous volunteer at a telephone helpline for depressed people, and his well-meaning but naïve co-worker Thérèse are stuck with the Christmas Eve shift in the Paris office, much to their displeasure. They receive visits from unwanted callers: Katia, a depressed transvestite who tries to hit on Pierre, Mrs Preskovitch who lives in the same building and always turns up unexpectedly to offer them various unappetizing pastries, and Josette, a heavily pregnant woman on the run from her violent fiancé Félix. Félix is working as a Santa Claus during the season and turns up on his trail in costume and brandishing a gun.
All the profits of the show will be given to the association “Child at Street 11”, a social initiative for families who cannot afford to send their children to nursery or kindergarten. “Child at Street 11” allows to give a good education to young children as well as allows mothers to work to help them to get out from the poverty cycle and create an additional income to the households.
