The untold Story of Sleeping Beauty

Posted

In February the French Tales series makes us discover Anatole France, famous novelist, Nobel prize of Litterature in 1921, senator, and member of the Academie Francaise. In 1909, he published Les Sept Femmes de Barbe bleue et autres contes merveilleux, a series of magical and somehow unreasonnable tales, full of a surprising spirit and humour for a major writer who was considered as a classical novelist. Exchange Theatre adapts one of these hilarious tales: “The story of the duchess of Cicogne and M. De Boulingrin who slept a hundred years with Sleeping Beauty” where he explores what happens to other people than the princess when she fell asleep with her whole kingdom… Very witty and funny.
