The salonnieres

 

Synopsis

1M/4W

In pre-Revolutionary Paris, a young girl fresh from the convent is promised in marriage to an older nobleman to pay off her father’s debts. She flees to the literary salon of her late mother’s friends, aristocratic women who conceal radical politics within reinvented folk tales. But which of them is her fairy godmother, and which the cruel stepmother? Is the duke a Prince Charming or a Beast? And is the maid the humble nobody they treat her as, or the hero of a story none of them knows they are in?

The Salonnières premiered in October–November, 2018 at Greater Boston Stage Company.

Previously, it had a workshop at the Magic Theatre, San Francisco.
