Irreverent, caustic and touching, Nottage weaves an imaginative tale based on a fascinating but forgotten time.

Helen Hayes, Theatre Washington

Whose stories are either erased from history, or never recorded at all? This is the Baroque-era true story of an illicit romance between Queen Marie-Therese (wife of Louis XIV) and her African servant, Nabo Sensugali, a Little Person from Dahomey, and the hilarious consequences that scandalized the French court.
