Book summary: Agatha & Savannah Bay

1992 BY MARGUERITE DURAS

Savannah Bay - Written for legendary French actress, Madeleine Renaud, this play explores questions of identity, aging, and the fugitive memory of personal tragedy. A young woman desperately desires to find out the truth about her mother. Her interrogation of an old woman (Madeleine) reveals secrets and sorrows that had been carefully stowed in the past.

Agatha - An empty house, its walls bare, a window open on a winter sun, a deserted beach nearby, where no one will go. A brother and a sister, dressed in all variations of the color white, are tearing themselves off from the impossible, telling each other, over and over, the devastating violence of their incestuous love, remembering, remembering.
