Excellent, concise play 5 April 2014
By Alexander Kanter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent example of intelligent playwrighting. It is a gripping semi-fictional recount of Louis XIV's rise to power, complete with quip-laden dialogue and intrigue. Reminiscent of Goldman's "Lion in Winter." Very glad to have purchased this product.
