Presented in 1992 on Broadway with Al Pacino in the role of Harry Levine this urban comedy is a real "grin of disillusionment".
It's one o'clock in the morning on a cold New York night when Harry Levine, a poor writer, hypochondriac and neurotic, knocks on the door of his best friend Jake Manheim, photographer of actors.
Harry has a dollar and a half in his pocket and Jake owes him a lot of money, but that's not the worst: he says he did not read the manuscript Harry gave him, a new novel on which he places a lot of hope. Did he read it or not?
Relentlessly, obsessively, Harry pushes sardonic Jake to the end until the truth is told.
Not only did Jake read the novel and find much of the life of two friends, but he also thinks that the work is a stroke of genius of his friend, destined to a great commercial success. Violently jealous, convinced that he has the potential to be the writer that Harry actually became, the failed photographer tries to destroy his friend's luck.
Until the final moment when Harry strongly asserts his right to success. Through this emotionally strong interview, the two friends dissect themselves and wonder about the meaning of their lives and the links that unite them as well as remove them.
This piece was performed for the first time in France in 2003 by Richard Berry (who also signed the translation) flanked by an excellent François Berléand
