Synopsis: Cafe le Monde is a play about art and artists. It is a play about the fact that every single person you ever see or meet has a complex story, thought life, and problem – flaws, failures, and a thousand beautiful things that make them. It takes place in a cafe. There will be singing, dancing, art, music, arguments, love stories – all playing out before us and the audience will be a part of the crowd.
