Don't look now, but...what dramatic form would you expect the French to impose on English history? Bedroom farce, of course. Good Queen Anne and the Churchills, Winston's ancestors, are here in Eugene Scribe's nineteenth-century classic, riding high as the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough. While the Duke is struggling against the armies of Louis XIV, the Duchess is trying to inveigle Abigail Churchill's beau into bed, not knowing the girlish Queen wants him too. It's a perfect opportunity for the wily politician Bolingbroke. As seen through French eyes, these English historical characters would never recognize themselves. In fact, they'd be shocked!

About the Author:

Robert Cornthwaite has worked for many years as an actor in radio, theater, films, and television. Occasionally he directs a play, or writes one, or translates one from languages he learned in school or from travel - French, German, and Italian. These are always plays he likes for their liveliness, their humor, their ideas, and-yes-their sheer theatricality.

Language Notes:

Text: English (translation)
Original Language: French
