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 play and Ancien Régime fall apart.
Follows the antics of performers trying their best to perform a production of Monsieur Perrault’s The Little Glass Slipper as the French Revolution breaks out. Actors flee, assassination is attempted, and the age old saying “the show must go on” is pushed to the limit.
