After Ultra-Girl versus Schopenhauer, the young theatre group De Onze à Trois returns to the Célestins with Josie Harcoeur, a new dramatic and musical foray into the world of pop culture.

Everyone in France remembers Dalida, Sheila and Nicoletta, but who still remembers the name of Josie Harcoeur? Pierre Duclos, who happened to be born on 2 December 1982 – the day on which the singer died – decided to find out more about this shooting star of the 1970s pop world.  Thirty-seven years later, he barges into the Brittany manor house of Yvonne Brodsky, the singer’s private secretary and confidante, and the last person keeping her memory alive.
Pierre then makes an incredible discovery… This new play by director Cédric Roulliat alternates musical theatre and genre cinema, gothic motifs and TV flashbacks. Randomly questioning the process of identification, the lure of the footlights and the quest for immortality, Josie Harcoeur unveils a lost paradise that is both fun to watch and cathartic – a real cure for the doldrums.
