Hybrid formula: Reading and direction of Rachel Graton’s play 21.

21 is first of all a basketball game that Zoé and Sara play every week. It quickly becomes a place where a sincere emotional bond is formed between them, as Zoé has just been placed in the youth center where Sara is a counselor. Like a meticulously orchestrated sheet of music, the revelations are like the portrait of two characters in search of recognition.

With finesse and sensitivity, Rachel Graton draws a moving duet, testifying to the reality experienced by the beneficiaries and social workers. By questioning our conditioning, the apparent fatality of family and social legacy, the author examines the possibility of changing the line of our lives and acting on what seems to be a destiny.

Rachel Graton proves that she deserves her place among the important voices of the new Québec dramaturgy. By its themes as much as by its form of writing, 21 is a contemporary and essential play.

On the acting side, Marine Johnson and Isabelle Roy, whom director Alexia Bürger keeps away from all excesses, form a formidable tandem. Between the first one, who brilliantly defends her first role in the theater, and the second one, who has been moving us for two decades, there is not a shadow of a gap.
