In pre-Revolutionary Paris, a young girl who promised to marry a duke to pay off her father's debts flees to the literary salon of her later mother's friends: aristocratic women who conceal radical politics within reinvented folk tales. 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 just a maid, or the hero of a story none of them knows they are in?
Directed by Weylin Symes, The Salonnieres is a world-premiere play by Liz Duffy Adams.
