The play tells the story of the last days of Marie Antoinette, and aims to go beyond our image of the ‘let them eat cake’ queen to examine the truth behind her life and her downfall. Based on extensive research and contemporary accounts of the trial, it’s the first play in English to put the trial on stage.
The play runs at the Courtyard Theatre from 4th to 30th August, Tuesday to Sunday nights at 7.30pm.
