In a story about French Society encapsulated by gossip, glamour, hypocrisy, and scandal, revel in this writers mastery of rhymed verse and comedy and how he builds upon Moliere’s period comedy of manners. Together, they will leave your sides aching.

When she represents a political neophyte with staunch ideals, she is faced with a choice that might change everything for her: back the system, or back what she believes in? By the author of DRY POWDER. “A tautly intelligent drama! Gives you a short, useful course on the fuel Washington runs on! It adds to a vital public discourse about the kind of government we have vs the kind we want!” — Washington Post
