See 'Marie Antoinette' at Fir Acres Theatre
Lewis & Clark Theatre Department will present "Marie Antoinette" by David Adjmi March 12-14 at Fir Acres Theatre on campus, 0615 SW Palatine Hill Road, Portland.
The play is described as a riotous and sharply written work about the monstrous things people do in gilded cages.
The production explores the rumblings of revolution that are just underneath the surface of our attempt to be picture perfect, and the violent repercussions of ignoring the suffering of many for the pleasure and comfort of a few. Tickets are $5 to $15 and can be purchased online at https://college.lclark.edu/live/news/39148-marie-antoinette.
