Shooting Simone
Shooting Simone
By Lynne Kaufman.

Cast: 2m., 2w. (2 optional nonspeaking roles.) Act I: Paris 1937, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, the Bogie and Bacall of the Intelligentsia, make a vow to always be each other's "necessary love." They will, of course, have "contingent" love affairs, but nothing that will threaten their primary and equal relationship. Enter Olga, Simone's young country cousin who bewitches Sartre, undermines Simone, and very nearly destroys the "writing couple." Simone, naturally, kills Olga—at least on paper. Act II: Paris 1980. Kate, a young documentary filmmaker who has modeled her life after the great feminist, is attempting to resurrect the details of the affair and to find the true Simone. Through her disillusionment, Kate finds her own individuality. This very funny play explores sexual jealousy, long-term love, the changing face of feminism and the inevitably subjective nature of "truth." Unit set.
