Celebrated actress and singer, Louise Blackwell, brings to life the story of French singer, Juliette Gréco. Set in post-war Paris, Blackwell performs songs which evoke the joy and revelry of liberation from German occupation as it occurred in the legendary underground clubs of Saint Germain des Prés, in this remarkable reimagining of Gréco’s extraordinary life.

At the age of 16, after weeks of brutality and Imprisonment by the Nazi regime, Gréco found refuge in this bohemian quarter and was adopted by a spectacular community of artists, writers and philosophers who encouraged her to become a singer. Gréco embodied the spirit of rebellion and freedom and is still known today as the muse of Saint Germain des Prés.
