Originally, 13 à Table was written by Marc-Gilbert Sauvageon, performed for the first time in 1953. It is therefore sixty-seven years later that Pierre Palmade, who has already directed the play in 2012, offers its version. He plays Antoine, who welcomes his guests for Christmas Eve with his wife Madeleine, camped by Virginie Hocq. Everything turns badly when Madeleine, superstitious, realizes that there will be thirteen at the table!
” It’s a bit complicated at the moment to do theater in public, so I’m doing it for television. It’s a way of continuing to do my job, ” says Pierre Palmade to our colleagues atNoon Free .

It still lasted 2:20 , he remembers. The public kept it. a good memory, especially with Marthe Mercadier, then there was this actor, Jean Leduc, who adored female jobs because he was very precious and had a way of playing great ladies very well. I had then transformed the play to a homosexual couple. ”
