George Sand Is A Woman Who F*cks (feat. Léa Des Garets‪)‬ Historical Homos

    • History

Historical Homos is back! This week we cover George Sand, who was, get this, a woman! And a writer! And queer!
George wrote over 70 novels and plays between 1804 and 1876, during which she witnessed the rise and fall of SEVEN political regimes in France. When she wasn't busy writing about women's oppression and worker's rights, she was actively rubbing shoulders (and genitals) with Paris' liberal media elite.
And she did it all traipsing around in men's clothes, bedding a hot actress named Marie Dorval, and falling in love with luminaries like Frederic Chopin and Alfred de Musset.
Which begs the question, what have you ever done?
Our guest this week is the brilliant playwright and actress Léa Des Garets, whose new play GEORGE portrays our heroine in all her queer glory. Catch it in London at the Omnibus Theatre this June.
