About this show

Celebrate Women's History Month at the Venus Theatre with the second of three performances in the fortheloveof...her-story series. Gabrielle Bompard (1868-1923) was a young, suggestible bourgeois woman who was dominated and hypnotized by men until she finally was lured into taking part in murder. In this one-woman show, she relives her life and crime from her prison cell, fighting off her demons but bathing in the memory of her sensational celebrity in Belle Epoque Paris. Her tale highlights the tensions involving gender, law and order, and hypnotism in France toward the close of the nineteenth century.
