Christina, The Girl King opens at the Stratford Festival today, and, with perfect timing, the book has just arrived from the presses!
About the play: Enigmatic, flamboyant and unpredictable, with a passion for philosophy and the arts, Sweden’s Queen Christina seeks to make her country the most sophisticated in Europe. But her personal aspirations – and her unconventional sexuality – put her profoundly at odds with her culture’s expectations of her, both as a monarch and as a woman.
This latest play by Michel Marc Bouchard, translated by Linda Gaboriau, runs until September 21, 2014 in Stratford, Ontario. You can order your copy from Talonbooks.com for $16.95.
