About Belleville

Amy Herzog, author of After the Revolution—heralded by The New York Times as “engrossing and incisive” and one of the Ten Best New Plays of 2010—makes her Yale Rep debut with Belleville. The world premiere is directed by OBIE Award winner Anne Kauffman, who recently staged We Have Always Lived in the Castle at Yale Rep.

Young Americans Zack and Abby have the perfect ex-pat life in Paris: a funky bohemian apartment in up-and-coming Belleville; a stable marriage; and Zack’s noble mission to fight pediatric AIDS. But when Abby finds Zack at home one afternoon when he’s supposed to be at work, the questions and answers that follow shake the foundation of their seemingly beautiful life.

Belleville runs approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes and is performed without an intermission.
