Saint Exupéry wrote the famous book Le Petit Prince which was made into a movie.
This play is based on the two years he spent in New York.
We see scenes from both the seaside house in France and an apartment in New York city.
Saint -Ex has a wife Conseulo who has a lover and Saint-Ex also has a lover in New York.
The actors portray their roles with enthusiasm and great energy sometimes speaking in English when relevant;
At the time in New York, in 1942, St.Ex was preparing to go to war to defend France. His wife and girlfriend both tried to talk him out of it.
The concerns for humanity in 1942 are the same as today which is reflected in the play. The play attempts to depict the wonders of Saint-Exupéry’s thinking on the complexity of the world’s problems .
Saint Ex à New York is entertaining and gives us points to reflect upon.
