Courtesan, party girl, liar and legend, Marie Duplessis, will bring the biggest party of 1847 to The Old Fitzroy Theatre from 30th November to 15th December 2012.

The most famous and wealthy courtesan in Paris, Marie has been bedridden with consumption for four months. She gets out of bed, dons a frock, pops a bottle of champagne and sits alone for several hours to celebrate her birthday. She died 18 days later, aged 23…but Mademoiselle is not done yet.

Together with the audience, Songs for the Fallen will delve into Marie’s glamorous boudoir to celebrate the wild and unforgettable final birthday party Marie never had.

Part vaudeville, part punk opera, part MTV-does-Baroque, Songs for the Fallen features an original electro-score by Basil Hogios (Andy X and How to Train Your Dragon) which will see the audience get down and dirty with Paris’ queen of the demimonde.

Songs for the Fallen is written and performed by Sheridan Harbridge (Mrs. Bang: A Series of Seductions in 55 minutes - ‘Best Cabaret’ winner at Melbourne Fringe 2010), Ben Gerrard (ABC1’s Outland and Shakespeare's R & J) and Garth Holcombe (TV’s Head Start and Home & Away).

Directed by Shane Anthony (Avenue Q and Often I Find That I Am Naked), produced by Michael Sieders (The Brothers Size and Porn. Cake) and designed by Michael Hankin (The Dark Room and Truckstop).
