Break of Noon

Cyprus : Break of Noon

Theatro Dionysos presents the play "Break of Noon" by the French poet, dramatist and diplomat Paul Claudel, translated and directed by Leandros Taliotis.

Travelling with her businessman husband by boat to China, the beautiful Ysé de Ciz encounters a Chinaman, Mesa, who is weakened by God's apparent deafness to his devotion. Bored by her husband De Ciz and her former lover Amalric, Ysé attempts to seduce Mesa. Landed in Hong Kong, Ysé's husband leaves on a business trip which leads to his death, and she and Mesa make passionate love in a cemetery. Finding no fulfilment with Mesa, even though she is bearing his child, she marries her former lover Amalric. Later, she and Amalric find themselves trapped in a Confucian temple during an uprising. They prepare to dynamite the building rather than be taken alive. Mesa comes through the enemy lines and in a long monologue to the silent Ysé declares his continuing love for her. Amalric knocks him out, steals his pass that will give them safe passage, and sets off with Ysé. She soon returns, however, to die in Mesa's arms.
