One evening, Claire, a 38 year-old anonymous heroine, collapses in her sitting room: she is taken to hospital and has open-heart surgery. She is just one of over a thousand women who suffer the same fate. After several years of investigation, a pulmonologist finally understands that Mediator, an anti diabetic prescribed as a slimming aid, is actually a toxin. Here begins a never-ending battle against inertia and lies.
With great tact, resilience and empathy, Pauline Bureau reveals the brutal reality behind one of the greatest French medical scandals. Supported by a group of exceptional actors, she shares with us the tragedy of all these innocent women victims and shines a light on a brave doctor who seeks justice. This is a real lesson in humanity and an unforgettable evening of theatre.

A story filled with rage and passion; the struggle of an anonymous heroine who exposes the Mediator scandal. A theatrical hurricane that leaves nothing standing in its wake.

« Somewhere between light and shade, Claire’s terrible realization infuses the deeply affected audience and becomes their own. »
Le Journal du dimanche

« Carried by an almost poetic and minimalist staging, the de la Part des Anges troupe have thrown themselves body and soul into this arresting and captivating tale. »
