Therese Raquin

directed by Jim Petosa

Originally a novel by Emile Zola published in 1867, Therese Raquin is a dark erotic exploration of the human subconscious, told through a series of sort scenes that alternate between comic and horrific. Therese, a young half-French, half-Algerian woman, was unhappily married to her sickly first cousin by a well-intentioned but overbearing aunt. When the opportunity arises, she enters into an affair with her husband’s friend, Laurent, leading to brutal and tragic consequences. Michael Feingold of The Village Voice wrote that this adaptation by Neal Bell, “Keeps the grit and erotic animality…using the grotesque tiny details to imply feelings and situations in vivid shorthand. Naturalism as haiku.”
