LadyCake

(Melbourne)

Marie Antoinette – teen icon, loving mother, draconian villain, murdered queen.

How easy is it to tear a woman from her throne?

LadyCake is a modern re-fashioning of the myths surrounding the infamous last queen of France – Marie Antoinette – who lived like a rock star against the backdrop of a blood-thirsty revolution.

An electrifying and darkly witty piece that sees a flamboyant collision between 18th century France and the modern day, LadyCake contends with the way speculation, gossip, assumption and physical criticism can cruelly undermine a woman.

Using Marie Antoinette as the leading lady, Three Birds Theatre dives into a colourful and captivating world of luxury, revolt and too much cake.
