The inaugural Donmar Trafalgar season continued last night (29 November 2010, previews from 25 November), with the opening of Chris Rolls’ production of Cocteau’s Les Parents Terribles, translated by Jeremy Sams and starring Frances Barber, Tom Byam Shaw, Anthony Calf, Elaine Cassidy and Sylvestra Le Touzel.

The action is set in a bohemian household in 1930s Paris. When Michael (Byam Shaw) declares his love for a girl, his devoted mother burns with jealousy while his father is shocked to discover that his son's lover is someone he is familiar with.

The intention of the Donmar/Trafalgar partnership is to showcase the work of graduates from the Donmar’s Resident Assistant Director Scheme (RAD) and will take the form of a 12-week residency every year for the next three years.

 Les Parents Terribles continues in Trafalgar Studios 2 until 18 December.
