The Department of Theater, Dance and Performance studies enthusiastically welcomes the entire Tufts community to come see David Adjmi’s (playwright) contemporary take on the young queen of France. Marie Antoinette is a confection created by a society that values extravagance and artifice. But France’s love affair with the royals sours as revolution brews, and for Marie, the political suddenly becomes very personal. From the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité!” in the streets, Marie Antoinette holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.

Tickets are available now via this page.
