Voix du Dropt Wednesday 24th, Thursday 25th and Friday 26th July
This year the priority is given to drama and humour with two shows which had high success last season in Paris.
Wednesday 24 th: Programme not set yet.
Thursday 25th: Castle courtyard in Eymet, 9.30 pm - Cahin Caha by Serge Valetti
Created  at the Lucernaire in Paris, direction by David Géry with and in the title roles Olivier Crudellier and Christian Drillaud.
"How do we start?" wonders Caha. Between unusual and absurd, here we are carried away in a misunderstanding in which is to say that faced to the wild imagination of Cahin, Caha opposes a "I would not like to" into Bartleby way. And from this dynamic, both stooges will lead us to incredible pranks where madness and reason fight over the advantage. France Inter
Friday 26th: Castle courtyard in Eymet, 9.30 pm - Incredibly incroyable by and with Bertrand Brossard
A stand-up comedy in English for French and in French for English.
From Nicolas II's murder to mim artist Marceau, from the nautical escapadesof the Queen of England to the pleas of an anxious frog, the artist creates a universal language full of cynicism and dark human whic allows all French and English publics to understand each other and all agree in the common language of laugh.
Finally during these three days, Didier Bezace, honorary president of the Association culturelle de la Vallée du Dropt will please us with a reading ans a meeting, exchange with the public (schedule not set yet).
