She no princess, he no hero (Elle pas Princesse, Lui pas héros, Actes Sud Papiers)
by Magali Mougel
translated by Chris Campbell
Leïli likes hunting, dressing like the boys and gelling her hair. Nils has long hair, cries a lot, and doesn't have big muscles. Cédric is big and strong, and does everything he can to be the perfect boy. These three children grow up together, becoming neither princesses nor super heroes. This piece is aimed at children aged seven and above. The characters address the audience directly, on a mission to find out what makes each of us either a girl, or a boy.
