    “You can't understand it, but I was born to be a queen. And I wasn't raised I was built: I was built to be this thing, and now they're killing me for it.”

    Spoiled, pretty, rich – Marie Antoinette has it all. Except her friends are fake, her husband is incompetent, the French people are baying for her blood, and a strange sheep keeps reminding her of her impending death. Totally. Not. Cool.

    Playwright David Adjmi offers a new take on the iconic and tragic queen of France in a sharply written, strikingly pertinent play that is as sour as it is sweet.
