THE LITTLE GLASS SLIPPER AS PERFORMED BY THE QUEEN OF FRANCE AND HER FRIENDS
France 1789. Tension is high and whispers of revolution fill the halls of Versailles. We are at the Queen’s Theatre attending a performance given by Marie Antoinette and her aristocratic friends. It is the 14th of July and today, the Bastille will be stormed. Chaos ensues as both play and Ancien Régime fall apart.
Follow the antics of performers trying their best to stage a production of Monsieur Perrault’s The Little Glass Slipper as the French Revolution breaks out. Actors flee, assassination is attempted, and the old saying “the show must go on” is pushed to the limit!
