An AstaroTheatro Production

“Monsieur Teste” was introduced to the world in 1896.
In 1925 Valéry wrote:
"Coming back to Monsieur Teste... a character of this kind could not survive in reality for more than a few quarters of an hour."
Thanks to the magic of theatre he will stay with us a while longer.
