About: Factors Unforeseen - A La Renverse

This is the story of a small French cosmetics company with a popular suntan lotion at the centre of its business.
But when a young and beautiful princess, dying of skin cancer, agrees to be interviewed regularly on television during the final weeks of her life, sales plummet.
Staff are under pressure. Workers strike. Companies fall. This is the story of growth, collapse and re-growth and its effect on all concerned.
20 actors in an extraordinary play about global capitalism, by one of France's leading writers.

Michel Vinaver, who has just been nominated for two Molière awards, first wrote A La Renverse – Factors Unforeseen – in 1979. In 2006 the play was completely revised in a workshop and then presented in Paris in this new version.
