The day that Charles Jaquet, Minister of Education, Family and Culture, a staunch enemy of vice and sin, achieves a political success by closing brothels and banning abortions, is also the day that he receives blow after blow at home, first from his son, then from his wife. They have some shocking news for him! His career, his son's future and his daughter's wedding are in jeopardy! His only hope remains that the bio-experiment with the rabbit will be negative! A sparkling comedy written by André Roussin in 1951, but still extremely topical today. A show full of unexpected twists and turns.


"Cosmin Rădescu plays a charming role, creating a frivolous, intelligent character, rather bored in the marital relationship, a moralist in the public space, but also at home, when he keeps waving an extended index finger in front of the children, but at the same time a careful spirit , diplomatic, empathetic, ready to support his boy materially, but also with advice: "As a man you must not leave traces. Well, what, are you a snail?”. [...]
When you have a good text, it seems simple. The merit of the directors Alexandru Boureanu and Raluca Păun is precisely this: that it seems simple, that everything flows naturally, that a certain atmosphere is created, through sets and costumes, through lights and musical illustration - from French pieces, at "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini " they stand out, but the show, the actors. ”
