Scandal, seduction, intrigue. An illicit love affair in the royal house of France. A fiercly imaginative look at a rare and beautiful story.
A story of an unlikely friendship, and an even unlikelier romance, unfolds in the royal court of 17th century France. Queen Marie-Therese longs for the love and attention of her husband, King Louis XIV, but when she receives a mysterious gift – an African man named Nabo – her entire world changes. From the Pulitzer Prize-winning and internationally renowned writer Lynn Nottage.
