Mélody Mourey's latest creation,Big Mother, is set against the backdrop of a major political scandal in the United States, which leads a team of journalists from "New York Investigation" into a complex investigation.

The story begins with a scandal involving the President of the United States, shaking up the editorial staff of "New York Investigation". Julia Robinson, one of the journalists, is particularly affected when, during a trial, she thinks she recognizes her former companion, presumed dead four years earlier, in the dock. This disturbing coincidence launches Julia and her team on an investigation that brings them face to face with a program of mass manipulation on an unprecedented scale. Their journey brings them face to face with the biggest scandal since Watergate, threatening both democracy and their own safety.

Her talent for weaving captivating narratives that resonate deeply with current concerns is evident in this play, which has no shortage of humor despite its serious subject matter.
