Rage. Revolt. Revolution. Revenge. What happens when Black people grow tired of sitting down and turning the other cheek? This is the question Southbank Theatre Company will tackle when it presents “Marie Antoinette and the Magical Negroes.”
Using trap music, fashion shows and the backdrop of the French Revolution, “Marie Antionette and the Magical Negros” reimagines the myth of the lost monarchy and puts it into the hands and mouths of Black people, moving fluidly between the 18th century and the contemporary Black Lives Matter movement. This hybrid history play is directed by Kelly Mills and written by Terry Guest, a Chicago-based, award-winning playwright, who premiered “The Magnolia Ballet” in Indianapolis in March to rave reviews.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $22 for students and seniors and available at the door and online at Southbanktheatre.org.
