Word for Word RSVP now open

Word for Word performs Lucia Berlin

The Library and École Jeannine Manuel are proud to present the annual production of Word for Word on Monday 9 April 2018 at 19h30, which returns to its historic home at 4, Square Rapp, across the street. The former Théâtre Adyar has been renovated and expanded, and is now Le Théâtre de la Tour Eiffel. There will be a single peformance this year – one night only.

Featuring “Her First Detox”, “Emergency Room Notebook 1977”, “Unmanageable”, “502”, and “Here It Is Saturday,”  these five Bay Area stories from Berlin’s posthumous A Manual for Cleaning Women illuminate Berlin’s insightful, compassionate view of American society. Set to an evocative jazz score (Marcus Shelby, composer), and vivid projections (Naomie Kremer, artist) these witty stories feature a complex woman balancing motherhood, a working life, and addiction. See for more about the late author.
