World Premiere Play Closes June 26
Presented by Single Carrot Theatre
It’s the last weekend to catch the world premiere of “Marie Antoinette and the Magical Negroes,” written by Terry Guest and produced by Single Carrot Theatre. Set against the opulent background of 16th century Versailles and the French revolution, this play delves deep into the history of race and revolution in America. This high-fashion, club-swirling, time-jumping theatre extravaganza asks what is needed to keep the revolution alive for centuries to come. The show closes on June 26, so get your tickets now!

Inspired by Sophocles’ “Antigone,” this play is the largely wordless story of an immigrant who is put to work building a wall against her country of origin (and, therefore, her brothers), under the dangerous eye of new leader, Creon, and against the pull of her ancient namesake.
