MARIE ANTOINETTE

By David Adjmi
Directed by Annie G. Levy

This revolutionary take on the life and downfall of the Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, displays the vapid and ill-fitting earlier days of her monarchy and its deterioration as the revolution brews in her country all while providing the richest insight to one of history’s most potentially misconstrued events.

A note from
Annie G. Levy, Director

It is difficult to remain neutral when it comes to the historical figure of Marie Antoinette. And opinions of her are certainly a mixed bag: Some feel sympathy, some feel she got what she deserved, some feel jealousy, some jump straight to condemning any contemporary Marie figure, some might feel a strong allegiance to the political force that disposed of her, some might simply attempt to dress up like her every Halloween.

Wherever your own life, politics, spending habits, and/or fashion sense leaves you in relationship to Marie, you are invited here, in witnessing this play, to potentially identify with Marie and, at minimum, take the opportunity to really consider her.

It is relatively common knowledge that Marie never said “oh, let them eat cake,” in response to the news of her starving subjects. But Marie, like most of us, cannot win the war against perception, and thus she remains a symbol of wretched excess even as her actual story remains significantly more complicated. To be clear, this note is not a defense of Marie, the same way Marie Antoinette is not a defense of Marie Antoinette. 

Instead, the play subtly asks us to consider the societal role of the scapegoat. Traditionally and mythically, a goat, designated to be the scapegoat, receives the sins of the community and is then banished, thereby absolving the community of their wrongs. Marie was both a creature created for her world and the perfect target for everything that was wrong with her world. She was a symbol of excess, she was a foreigner, and if the first two weren’t damning enough on their own, she was also a woman with some perceived semblance of and close proximity to power. She was (and is) an ideal scapegoat.

 

The use of a scapegoat should make us uncomfortable and the story of Marie Antoinette should make us uncomfortable. Any concentration of power should make us uncomfortable and mob mentality and state-mandated murder should make us uncomfortable. Turning a human being into a symbol for the purposes of destroying them should always make us uncomfortable. 

 

But, Marie does get the last laugh and the final word here. In telling this story at all, we perhaps give her the greatest gift possible: Remembrance, Prolonged Fame, and the ability to remain Legendary.

A note from
the Dramaturgs

DRAMATURGS' NOTE

MARIE But I can’t dispense with the past, with history.
SHEEP That’s why you’ve become its victim. And your own life was lost to you.
MARIE I wish I could sleep.
SHEEP Wake up.
~ David Adjimi, Marie Antoinette

 

History often muddles the truth of events, but one of the few things we can say based on various accounts is this: Marie Antoinette was known to be a good mother. This much was true, though so too was how her and Louis XVI’s regime squandered national resources and failed to work with revolutionaries. Yet the criticisms Marie faced in her age were so often rooted in sensationalism; certain events left a legendary stain on French consciousness that outlived their contemporaries. 

A MODERN PERSPECTIVE

Dramaturgs' Interview With The Cast
Most of the dramaturgy work that we did with the cast was specifically about the historical events of the French Revolution, so we were curious to ask the cast how they saw the play in relation to their own 21st century lives. We asked members of the cast:

 

What have you drawn on from your own life in the 21st century to recreate these characters and events from the 18th century?
