Marie Antoinette by David Adjmi
directed by Teresa Sanderson
A contemporary take on the life of young queen of France, Marie Antoinette. She is a confection created by a society that values extravagance and artifice. But France’s love affair with the royals sours as revolution brews, and for Marie, the political suddenly becomes very personal.
From the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité!" in the streets, Marie Antoinette holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.
This play contains adult language and situations. Discretion is advised.
This show is produced with the generous support of Weber RAMP and Ogden Arts.
