Inseparable for the past 15 years, the friends in their thirties were not reviewed in the last two months. The first reading of the text was made on the eve of their return to the boards, in the apartment of Mary. "It is set at a metre and a half from one another, we washed hands and removed our shoes," she smiles. Lola arrives at the theatre wearing a mask but removes it on stage. "This is just not possible to sing with, we're suffocating!"

For the containment, they have reworked the text via WhatsApp, Zoom or even House Party. With increased efficiency, with sessions of 3 hours, more dense, instead of seven hours, " says Mary.

coronavirus, a subject still taboo

For five years, the trio had played its first show, The Girls, a mixture of sketches and songs where they took on a tone light and playful, issues of society, to speak freely of sexuality (some have dubbed " The Rascals).

"It would be too anxiety-provoking. Can you imagine doing the valves on it so that maybe there will be in the room, people who have lost someone because of the Covid?", says Juliette.

something Else unacceptable for them, as well as the quasi-totality of the world of spectacle: spectators, separated by vacant seats, as recommended in a recent document of the ministry which will be updated in September. "It plomberait the mood, the humor unites people, they must vibrate together at the theatre," says Mary. Their fear, out of coronaviruses? "Our jokes are not laugh", laugh out loud-they.
