French theatre author and director Salomé Lelouch was a special guest at the Varna Summer Theatre Festival on the occasion of the presentation of the first Bulgarian production of her acclaimed play You Shouldn’t Have Said So directed by Javor Gardev. The play has been nominated for the French Moliere Theatre Award 2022 for Best Comedy and Best Author. The theatre critic Veneta Doytcheva moderated the conversation with both the author and the director of the play.

Salomé Lelouch ranks high in popular French drama. Following her 2006 debut, she has been regularly staging her plays ever since. She has written nine texts and adaptations, and in 2017 she received her first nomination for the Molière French Theatre Award for best writer for the play Politically Correct. In 2018 she established her own theatre in Paris. In 2021 she staged You Shouldn’t Have Said So! at the Renaissance Theatre in the French capital along with Pierre Arditi, her stepfather, in the role of The Man, who was also nominated for the Molière Award.
