SUZANNE SAVOY (House of Cards, Untouchable) brings France’s first professional author, Christine de Pizan, to vivid life in this 90-minute tour-de-force compiled entirely from Christine’s own writings. Her works include her own biography, poetry (she is known to have written over 600 ballades), books and letters in support of the just treatment of women, a treatise on warfare and Chivalry, the official biography of King Charles V, colorful allegories, etc.—over 40 works in all. Live music composed by her contemporary, Guillaume de Machaut, underscores Christine’s words, translated by Ms. Savoy from de Pizan’s original Middle French manuscripts. Intimate, poignant, and rousing, Christine’s story offers a glimpse into a turbulent era of war, civil unrest, climate change and rampant epidemic, and the wit and spirit with which she prevailed.
