ABOUT THE PLAY
1839, Marseille, France.
When famous disobedient writer George Sand finds herself at a creative standstill, with an empty wallet, her desperate need for an idea leads her quill to the most intimate and dangerous place she has ever explored: herself.
Embarking on her most daring work yet with the play "Gabriel," she is caught in a perfect storm between her lovers, her queerness and what readers want from her.
Here. Now. When we strip away the costumes, George's fight could be ours.
