From the celebrated writer of Art, a scathingly hilarious commentary on vanity, professional insecurity, and the vicissitudes of marriage.
Life X 3 presents three versions of two couples (and an offstage six-year-old) trying to make a success of one evening despite the fact that they neither like nor respect one another. When Hubert and Inès arrive a day early to dinner at the home of Henri and Sophie, Sophie barely has time to change out of her robe and Inès is in a foul mood about a run in her stocking from there, the evening can only go downhill. Over an improvised meal of chocolate fingers, potato chips, and wine, the couples trade insults on every social and professional level and loyalties are changed with the same rapidity that glasses of Sancerre are drained. However, as she has so astutely done in the past, Yasmina Reza uses these acidic exchanges to illuminate the innate desire for love and acceptance in us all.
Yasmina Reza is an acclaimed playwright, screenwriter, and novelist. She lives in Paris.

This is a really good play, well done to Yasmina Reza on this one, I have only seeen this play and another play he wrote called Arts, but this one takes the cake. A play that keeps you on the edge of your swat through out the play..... The only draw back how ever, is it does repat the same night three times, so by the third time, you nearly know the lines as well as the actors
