Set in a big Dublin hotel of the mid-19th century, The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs is a total theater creation. In it, we discover that Albert, the perfect waiter—who never drinks, smokes, or flirts with the chambermaids—is in fact a woman who once dressed as a man to avoid poverty and is now trapped in the role. Based on a short story by George Moore, which was recently adapted into a major Hollywood film starring Glenn Close, Benmussa's story releases a string of disturbing questions about the nature of women and society and is one of the most powerful and groundbreaking plays of the 1970s.
