Marie Antoinette & 3C - Two Plays

David Adjmi Price: $17.95

Two plays from the virtuosic US playwright David Adjmi

Marie Antoinette

The eyes of the court are on Marie Antoinette

Times change and even the most fashionable queens go out of style

Drawing comparison between the gluttonous excess of Marie’s era and the decadent materialism of the present day, Marie Antoinette holds up a mirror to our contemporary society

Which just might be entertaining itself to death

Marie Antoinette had its world premiere at A.R.T./Harvard and Yale Repertory Theatre in 2012 and its New York premiere at Soho Rep in 2013

3C

The war in Vietnam is over and Brad - an ex-serviceman - lands in L.A. to start a new life

When he winds up trashed in Connie and Linda’s kitchen after a wild night of partying, the three strike a deal over an arrangement that has hilarious and devastating consequences for everyone

Inspired by 1970s sitcoms and 1950s existentialist comedy, 3C is a terrifying yet amusing look at a culture that likes to amuse itself

Even as it teeters on the brink of ruin

3C premiered at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre in 2012

REVIEWS

'David Adjmi’s Marie Antoinette is audacious and stunning. The work skewers the oblivious royals and one-percenters, understands their bred-to-be-bad behavior, and strips away the illusion of not only the monarchy but of democracy, too—a hat trick that Adjmi performs with the delicate balance of comedy, tragedy, and wild imaginings' ~ Variety

'Bitterly funny and inventive, 3C appropriates the sitcom structure of iconic Three’s Company and pumps it full of sexual panic and existential horror. Adjmi’s quick-cutting script is intensely funny and unnerving in equal measure' ~ Time Out New York
