Set in a big Dublin hotel of the mid-nineteenth century, The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs is a total theatre creation. In it, we discover that Albert, the perfect waiter - who never drinks, smokes or flirts with the chambermaids - is in fact a woman who once dressed as a man to avoid poverty and is now trapped in the role. Based on a short story by George Moore, which was recently adapted into a major Hollywood film starring Glenn Close, Benmussa's story releases a string of disturbing questions about the nature of women and society, and is one of the most powerful and groundbreaking plays of the 1970s.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It is refreshing to meet a director with such a clear theoretical approach to her work * Time Out *
As in a play by Pirandello or a story by Borges, the ground is constantly shifting under our feet. What does it mean to be a man? To be a woman? And did it mean the same thing in 1860 as it does now? What would a marriage between two women be like?... All these questions, these surmises, keep floating through one's head long after the performance is over * The Guardian *
In her Singular Life of Albert Nobbs, the brilliant French writer/designer/director has been at pains to retain Moore's original innocence of vision, and the result is a work of art. * The Sunday Telegraph *
