The Storm Theatre, in association with The Blackfriars Repertory Theatre, is proud to present NOON DIVIDE by Paul Claudel, directed by Peter Dobbins and Stephen Day, the final installment of our Paul Claudel Project.

On a ship bound for Hong Kong, a lonely civil servant meets a beautiful vivacious married woman. Seduction and an ensuing torrid affair lead to surprising consequences.

What at first seems a classic example of "Amor Fou" (a French term literally translated as "crazy love"), unfolds in a very unexpected way.

NOON DIVIDE was a play Claudel felt he had "written in his own blood". Using his own adulterous affair with Rosalie Vetch as his inspiration, Claudel explores human sexual passion, and its role within the architecture of Salvation.

This apparent tragedy of doomed love eventually reveals itself as a Divine comedy, much along the lines of his vast epic THE SATIN SLIPPER (which was also inspired by the same events in Claudel's life)
