Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Unseen voices narrate this story of the affair between the haunting Anne-Marie Stretter and the disgraced French vice-consul in Lahore. In the India of 1937, with the smell of laurels and leprosy permeating the air, the characters perform a dance of doomed love to the strains of a dying colonialism.

A play closely related to "The Vice-Consul", this reading felt like a way to remember the reading of that novel, although Duras is careful to point out that "India Song" should not be taken for a stage representation of "The Vice Consul". This book was made into a film at one point, directed by Marguerite Duras— but I'd like to see another adaptation by Kar Wai Wong—his cinematic sensibility seems suited to the coolness in the written direction and the heat in the narrative's language. It was upon reading this play that I had the sense, more strongly than ever before, that all of Duras's stories are of Duras in a fundamental way.

As with the reading of any good play, I longed to sit in a theatre and watch it instead.
