Maria Theresa of Austria struggles in her marriage to the 'Sun King', Louis XIV, who is primarily concerned with his own ballet spectacles and affairs. As a result, Maria gathers a colorful group of fortune tellers, circus performers and opera singers around her who soften the loneliness. When she suddenly falls ill, the doctor can do nothing for her. The health care system is focused on men. Maria slowly dies. “As queen, I have only been happy for one day”, were her last words. Theater collective Club Lam broadens our view of being a woman. They tackle clichéd images of historical female figures in a humorous way.
