It’s World War Two, and across France, people are joining the Resistance. Simon, his family, and his lovers are all fighting for all the wrong reasons in this absurdist farce full of hidden desires, hidden secrets, and hidden Jews.

In an era of unprecedented isolationism, nationalism, and xenophobia, this first-ever American production of a French modern masterpiece challenges us to connect across continents and bridge political and geographical divides. A wickedly funny sucker-punch of a play, Débâcles rolls around in our dirtiest, darkest impulses, and asks what truly drives us to take up arms.
