Set in the glittering court of Louis XIV, “Las Meninas” tells the true story of the seduction of Queen Marie-Thérèse, and the consequences of her scandalous affair with Nabo Sensugali, her African servant. Irreverent and ironic, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage shines a fiercely imaginative beam on a fascinating but forgotten bit of history that reveals contemporary truths about the racial divide.
The production, presented by the UMBC Department of Theatre, features choreography by Renée Barger Brozic, scenery and costumes by Elena Zlotescu and lighting and sound by Terry Cobb.
