From the moment the lights flickered on and off, to the last rousing chorus of the finale, Germinal had my attention. And I happily followed as the four cast members took me through a revised history of civilization in 75 minutes ! But it was also my history, your history, everyone’s history.

The play by Halory Goerger et Antoine Defoort uses humour, a pick-axe, evergreen trees and an electric guitar to tell the story we all know because we’re all actors in it as well.

Germinal is sophisticated in its simplicity, intelligent in its appeal to our base instincts, and just lots of fun. A thoroughly enjoyable experience !
