Marie Antoinette

I wasn’t raised I was built: I was built to be this thing; and now they’re killing me for it.

The eyes of the court are on her, and nothing good can come of it. They used to love Marie just the way she was. But now change is in the air and things are about to be different for France’s isolated young queen. Things are about to be different for everybody. Aren’t they?

Marin Ireland (Blasted) returns to Soho Rep. to take on Marie in a raw, fantastical, and funny production about a moment in time when the political suddenly got very personal. You’ve never seen a history play quite like this.
