Denali, a breathtaking thriller, returns to the Théâtre Marigny for just two dates on November 4 and 5. The play has been nominated for the Molière for Best Private Theater Show, Best Direction of a Private Theater Show for Nicolas Le Bricquir, Best Visual and Sound Design and Best Actress for Lucie Brunet.

Denali returns to the stage of the Théâtre Marigny, in the 8th arrondissement, for just two exceptional dates on November 4 and 5, 2024. Denali tells a true story, plunging us into a gripping, darkinvestigation.

We're taken to Alaska in 2019, where a 19-year-old woman has been found shot in the back of the head in a local river. The last people to see her were her two friends Denali Brehmer, 18, and Kayden McIntosh, 16. Two detectives lead the investigation, uncovering a sordid tale where teenagers are as much victims as culprits. You witness a dark investigation in which you don't know which side to take. Denali, a Molière-nominated play , tells the story of a youth whose only concern is appearances, at a time when smartphones are omnipresent in our society, within the walls of the Théâtre Marigny.

The play, written and directed by Nicolas le Bricquir and designed by Juliette Desproges, should surprise you with its dynamic, poignant scenography that plunges us into an almost cinematic universe. The production features powerful sound effects. In addition to being nominated for a Molière award, Denali won the Prix du Polar 2023 for best theatrical production, and the Prix du Public 2021 du Prix T13 for Nicolas le Bricquir. The show is performed by Compagnie Panorama.

Denali runs from June 5 to June 20, 2024 at the Théâtre Marigny.

Our review:

Denali is not for young children! The play tells a chilling true story, supported by extensive sound effects. Nicolas Le Bricquir 's staging is inspired by Netflix series, with a transparent curtain giving an impression of depth on stage. The play is organized like a series, with cuts between "episodes" and recaps of what happened a few minutes before. A staging like you've probably never seen before, innovative and surprising.

The true story sends shivers down your spine, not least because it's played out so wonderfully by the actors. Lucie Brunet, who plays Denali, is impressive. She irritates, annoys, hurts and moves us. If you like psychological thrillers, you'll love Lucie Brunet in this role. The play is tough and not the best thing to see if you want to take your mind off a bad day, but it's a must-see for both its staging and the acting. It conveys an interesting and important message about today's generations, with the impact of the telephone and social networks. You'll be constantly surprised throughout the play, as the investigation unfolds!
