AN ACTOR PROVES TO BE A WRITER-PERFORMER OF RARE SENSITIVITY, WITH A PINCH OF HUMOR FOR GOOD MEASURE.
Alone on stage, Scali Delpeyrat gives us a very personal show about his life and background, while delivering an offbeat tribute to his late father. There’s the story of his grandparents, who miraculously escaped the Vél’d’Hiv round-ups; the mysterious little girl whom he was wildly in love with at the age of four; the snow-white cat he found at the RSPCA; the Arab music that moves him so deeply; his need to prepare checklists before he goes to dinner parties; his Périgord-bred father, who loved a Jewish woman. A singular actor on stage and on screen, Scali Delpeyrat shows his true colors in a show both melancholy and charming, a mix of humor and perplexity, spiced up with an acute sense for the incongruous details and oddities of daily life
