"I wasn’t raised I was built: I was built to be this thing; and now they’re killing me for it."

Part Paris Hilton, part Ruth Madoff, David Adjmi's new take on the last queen of France asks the audience to extend a bit of empathy for the martyred royal. Wonderfully fleshed out by Marin Ireland, returning to Soho Rep after her unforgettable performance in Blasted five years ago, Marie is both naive and reasonable, outrageous and protective, funny yet resigned to her imminent demise. Ultimately, the show questions whether the acknowledged hierarchy of a monarchy might be no worse than the same hierarchy cloaked in the language of equality and democracy. Adjmi and Ireland create a haunting paean to the murder of the mistress of the 1% and, in the process, ask if anything has changed since.
