SYNOPSIS

TWO MEN CONFRONT EACH OTHER IN A CHARGED ENCOUNTER. The first, Assem, has the soul of a hunter. He is responsible for finding a former member of an elite American commando unit, which eliminated bin Laden in the Abbotabad raid. He tracks his target relentlessly using elaborate communication and surveillance equipment. But his adversary has no intention of being trapped: he also wants to force Assem to admit his own sordid truth. Écoutez nos défaites is a gripping story about spies determined to expose each other. But what happens if you see yourself in the eyes of your adversary? And what if winning means learning how to lose?

Agathe Bioulès here adapts Laurent Gaudé‘s novel, winner of the prestigious 2004 Goncourt Prize for French literature. The play weaves together historical reality and fiction with cruel and dizzying lucidity – because it’s all about us in the end.
