What if we had our time again?


Alex is returning to his childhood home.?

By a strange phenomenon, he finds himself facing his past on a critical day.

Forty years later, he sees again the young women he loved, his doting grandmother, and possibly, himself…

Would he make the same choices now that he knows what his life was?

Do we do what we like in life or what we can?

Do we choose?

Are we free?

What if we had our time again?

A touching, thought-provoking fable presented as a comedy, in which Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt taps into the philosophical vein that will be familiar to audiences of his earlier plays, such as the universally acclaimed Visitor or Two World’s Hotel.
