Out of the Bag Productions is presenting the world premiere of a new comedy at Playlovers Theatre this February.

A Piece of Cake sees a defiant Marie Antoinette spending her last days in a rat-infested prison cell with a smelly hag and Catholic peasant girl.

The three women form an unusual connection and the plot thickens a when surprise royal visitor arrives – cake is eaten and heads roll.

“I’ve had a lifelong fascination with Marie Antoinette and how she’s portrayed in popular culture,” writer Yvette Wall said.

“She is the girl, the queen, the disgraced and the beautiful woman, portrayed as tragic and hilarious, making her a character of reality and fantasy.”

Director Alida Chaney adds: “The play touches on the more serious side of Marie Antoinette’s arranged marriage at the tender age of 14 to King Louis XVI, when she was sent from her homeland of Austria.

“But generally it’s a very tongue-in-cheek romp that should evoke a giggle or two from the audience.

“The biggest challenge is allowing the humour to carry the piece while making sure the pathos and ultimate message doesn’t get lost amid the laughter and gags.”

A Piece of Cake plays at 7.30pm February 19, 20, 21 and 22 with a 2pm matinee February 22. Tickets are $20 – book at http://www.fringeworld.com.au/program/event/25c9b057-2091-4038-a91a-4c3c6de7a5c6/.

The Broken Slipper, a black comedy about Cinderella, also written by Wall and directed by Chaney follows at 8.45pm on the same dates.

Playlovers is located at Hackett Hall, Draper Street (off Underwood Avenue), Floreat.

Fringe World Festival 2015 will be held from January 23 to February 22.
