Nathalie Fillion is the author of Out There. After training as an actress and a decade on the boards, Nathalie Fillion wrote her first play and realized the she was a playwright. She directed Alex Legrand, performed 100 times in Paris and on tour.
Des Voix…Found in Translation is presenting a staged reading of her newest play Out There, for the first time in an English translation, directed by Amy Mueller. The play is currently in production in Paris, France.
The title in French is A L’ouest which literally means ‘to the west.’ It is an idiomatic expression in French for the mental state of being kind’ve out there – in perhaps a euphoria or fantasy world where one’s grip on reality seems be a bit thin. In it, U.S. audiences will find themes that will feel quite familiar – the down side of anti-depressants, a powerful patriarch with Alzheimer’s, and the super charged dynamic of an upper class family sorting financial devastation and loss after the collapse of global markets. But what constitutes family these days? Is the son of your ex-wife’s second husband, and his wife, entitled to an opinion?
