Post subject:  New Play: The Trial of Marie Antoinette

I've just received some email from Peter Langdon, author of a new play "The Trial of Marie Antoinette". It will be commencing a season of performances at London's Courtyard Theatre this August 4th - 30th.

Quote:
The Trial of Marie Antoinette is a new play by Peter Langdon. It's the story of the last days of one of history's most infamous women, going beyond our image of the 'let them eat cake' Queen to examine the truth behind her life and her downfall, and understand Marie Antoinette as a human rather than icon. The play considers how new political ideas and the hatred of the people became so powerful that Marie Antoinette had to die. Based on extensive research and historical records, this play is the first in English to put the trial on stage. With a cast of 11 and an epic sweep, The Trial of Marie Antoinette brings the turbulent times of the French Revolution vividly to life.


All the details are on their website - http://www.trialofmarieantoinette.co.uk/

Same here. Finally a play that doesn't trivialize her!
