The Balcony archiveSet in a time of disruption and unrest, the men of Genet's fictional French city flock to Madame Irma's brothel - a fantastical house of illusions. When revolutionaries overthrow the city, these desperate fantasists find their play-acting turns to reality. First staged in 1957 The Balcony is recognised as one of the founding plays of modern theatre.
