In June 1846, during a trip to Paris, Gustave Flaubert, aged twenty-four, met the poet Louise Colet, eleven years his senior. A romantic and letter-writing relationship ensues that will last until 1855. Their letters reveal the tumultuous relationship of the two lovers. This genesis of a loving passion is shared and embodied on stage by Anne-Marie Philipe and Jérôme Garcin. A reading that concludes the "Flaubert 21" anniversary events, organized in Deauville, to salute the bicentenary of the birth of Gustave Flaubert.
