Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage turns her fiercely imaginative lens on the lethal hierarchy of 17th-century Versailles, where a dangerous liaison or even a bad joke could cost a person their life. In the drama Las Meninas, Queen Marie-Thérèse, the wife of Louis XIV, receives a most unexpected gift: a tiny African named Nabo, delivered in a box for her entertainment. Teased for her bad teeth and accent, and neglected by her cheating husband, she develops a strange, tentative friendship with her fellow outsider in the palace. But can Nabo handle the draw and the danger of intimacy with the Queen? Find out as the powerful, provocative Las Meninas comes to The Rueff at A.C.T's Strand Theater.
