Les Adieux à la Reine

Farewell My Queen

NB: TICKETING HANDLED BY RESPECTIVE VENUES


On the eve of the French Revolution in 1789, those living at the Court of Versailles continue to lead carefree and uninhibited lives, far from the growing unrest in Paris. When the news of the assault on the Bastille reaches the court’s ears, the nobles flee along with their servants, deserting the palace...

But Sidonie Laborde, a young reader of the Court who is devoted to the Queen, refuses to believe the rumours. She is certain that under Marie-Antoinette’s protection she will come to no harm. Little does she know that these will be the last three days she will spend at her queen’s side.

 

Based on "Farewell, My Queen" by Chantal Thomas.
