Everyman Theatre and the Maryland Film Festival (MdFF) are pleased to announce “Everyman at the Parkway,” a season-long partnership and six-part screening series that will bring influential films to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway in conjunction with Everyman Theatre’s 2017/18 season. Whether artistically, structurally or thematically, each film/play coupling aims to inspire conversation and draw connections between the material exhibited on stage and on screen—and every film will be introduced and accompanied by a post-screening audience discussion, hosted by the Everyman Theatre artist who selected that pairing.
Farewell, My Queen
Described by the New York Times as a “tense, absorbing, pleasurably original look at three days in the life and lies of a doomed monarch,” Benoît Jacquot’s passionate and visually-stunning French drama, Farewell, My Queen, explores Marie Antoinette’s relationship with a reader during the final days of the French Revolution. Resident Set Designer Daniel Ettinger (who also designed the sets for The Revolutionists) will introduce the screening and host an informal discussion following the film.
