Paris, 1792. The French Revolution is four years old when ambitious young artist, Gamelin, discovers he has been made a magistrate for the ruling forces. Believing the Revolution divides the world between good and evil, he sees conspiracy and corruption everywhere. How strong will the ties of love and friendship prove when Gamelin is given power over life and death, as the new order plunges with terrifying momentum from high idealism to bloody mob rule? Private jealousies and public fears, old alliances and new ideologies all combine in this thrilling adaptation of Anatole France's 1912 novel Les Dieux ont Soif. Award-winning poet, playwright and novelist, Glyn Maxwell, brings a colloquial verse of great fluidity and immediacy to a story that is both fresh and relevant.
