For No Good Reason (Pour un oui pour un non) is a ‘language game’ by Nathalie Sarraute, one of the French writers who created the ‘new novel’ movement by rejecting the traditional novel structure in their quest for that which cannot be described in language and words. Originally written for radio, this play by Sarraute use language in the same way as other ‘new novel’ writers, with the main issue in the play and between the two male actors revolving around the meanings behind language, words, what has been said and what has not been said... Two very old and close friends embark on a serious reckoning of their friendship ‘for no good reason’. Brought by Podacto to audiences as a podcast, the play is about the place language has in our lives and the unseen but perceived judgments that seep into our relationships.
