What is language but a construct? What is communication but a facilitator of relationships?

JE NE SAIS QUOI is an original bilingual play by Alana Cherry and Victoria Zerbst that traverses planes of time and space to crystallise answers to these questions. Art and philosophy intersect, lovers collide, words are exchanged, misshapen, and lost in this intellectual romp across language and culture.

At its crux, it is a glimpse into the heart of human connections through the lives of six – a French couple, an Australian couple, and a pair of writers. But throw in a sarcastic waiter, a live band, a cabaret number, and a mime, and suddenly every character questions the nature of conversation and human interaction. Can their connections transcend our constructed barriers of communication? Qu’est-ce que c’est, l’amour?

Over the course of a single day, six characters’ lives are meshed and moulded, as they flirt with notions of romance, music, and Capital A Art.
