It was in the month of March 2020 that the world as a whole and life as Iris knew it - totally changed. France went into lockdown.
A pandemic, which especially targeted elderly persons, was on the rampage.

People are confined to their homes.  In nursing homes, residents are imprisoned in their rooms. Fear spreads, and streets become deserted.

In this theatrical piece, Iris Dupont is in solitary lock down, experiencing this new way of life as the days, weeks and months go by.  

On the 1st May 2020, in 30610 Gard, France:
Madame Iris Dupont risks everything when she decides to escape and go outside.

THE ESCAPE OF IRIS DUPONT is a mask theatre piece created during COVID 19 lockdown.

Created and played by Freya Stang.
