2020 Spring Main Stage Production: Marie Antoinette

February 10, 2020

  • Marie Antoinette

LEWIS & CLARK THEATRE DEPARTMENT PRESENTS:

SPRING 2020 MAIN STAGE PRODUCTION OF

MARIE ANTOINETTE

by David Adjmi

Directed by Associate Professor Rebecca Lingafelter

ABOUT THE PLAY: 

Marie Antoinette by David Adjmi is a riotous and sharply written play about the monstrous things people do in gilded cages. The play employs historical fact as well as the cultural mythology of Marie Antoinette to paint the portrait of a woman who is both elevated and held captive by her gender, circumstance and historic moment. The play re-imagines the possibilities present for the Queen of France as she navigates her personal pleasure, her family’s peril and her larger political and social responsibilities. The Lewis & Clark Theatre Department production will draw out resonances with our current time; highlighting our complicity in perpetuating a culture that puts celebrities, and women in particular, onto pedestals defined by beauty, fashion and sexuality. The production will also explore the rumblings of revolution that are just underneath the surface of our attempt to be picture perfect, and the violent repercussions of ignoring the suffering of many for the pleasure and comfort of a few.
