An old stage actor reminisces about his triumphs in a certain famous farce, but his defective memory and his many backstage amours disrupt the flow of his narrative. La Rue, a compulsive raconteur, doesn't let this stop him. The increasingly convoluted stream of sordid and hysterical memoirs reveals the absurdity, vanity, sadness and joy of a life spent in the cruel chaos of the theatre, providing a wonderful piece for a character actor.
