TCDS Presents: Guillotin - UofT Drama Festival 2015

Guillotin is not a misspelling: the play features 18th century physician Joseph-Ignace Guillotin, whose name somehow became eponymous with a device he did not invent, with a symbol of exactly the cruelty he wanted to abolish. During the Reign of Terror, Joseph was briefly arrested, and Guillotin takes advantage of this historical set-up. The one-act tragicomic play is set in a Parisian prison cell, where Joseph finds himself with a mirthful but thoughtful teenage girl named Lucie. Through a series of wistful and whimsical interactions, Joseph, Lucie and a guard, Arsène, gradually discover what each of them is really doing in such a place.
