Dec 4th, 2017

Les Trois Brigands - Théâtre Paris-Villette Tomi Ungerer

Ces trois méchants brigands passent leur temps à détrousser les voyageurs en diligence et à détruire les attelages… Sans coeur et sans scrupule, rien ne les arrête jusqu’au jour où l’unique butin de la diligence attaquée est Tiffany. Désemparés, ils s’enquièrent tout de même de l’orpheline.
