As he is leaving his psychiatrist’s office in Manhattan, the young Jimmy – twelve, and the son of a rich Wall Street lawyer – is tailed by a gang of crooks who intent to kidnap him… while following the instructions given in a novel that one of them read in prison!
Will the kidnapping eventually happen? The ransom be paid? And will the traps of the FBI be thwarted? In the end, everything will turn out to be quite different from what was initially planned. Reality will reveal itself to be more complicated than fiction, the crooks will appear to be nicer than their primary intentions, and Jimmy a lot smarter than he looks.
A new creation by the Compagnie du Théâtre du Loup, Jimmy the Kid promises to follow the tracks of some of its greatest successes, such as Zazie dans le métro or Le Bon Gros Géant, two theatrical adaptations that also threw children right into the turpitude of the adult world.
Attention : theater play in French !
