"Louis I, King of the Sheep" by Olivier Tallec (Enchanted Lion Books, September 2015) uses satire to treat themes central to the monarchy of the 17th century in a setting reminiscent of Versailles.

Jessica Kamin, 28 July, 2015

A new original theater piece entitled "Jeanne des Anges", elaborated by Ron Bashford and Carine Montbertrand, tells the story of the 17th century French nun suspected of being demonically possessed.  The show was performed in Maine this month (see link below), and is anticipated to run at Amherst College in the spring, as well as other venues.
