In 2008 with more courage and experience to perform on the stage we put our heads together to create a script to an amateur play. Our aim was to make the audience smile about beauty procedures and other episodes of life in a Boudoir. None of participants was a professional actor, but passionate and enthusiastic. It was supposed to be a theatrical illustration on 18th century life with a hint of naive humour framed in elaborate period costumes.
The Master of Courts’ Ceremonies is giving introduction.
Court ladies are almost awake and almost ready to meet the Duchess in her Boudoir.
And her she comes and gets all of the attention!
The hair styler, who learned the Hair Raising Art at Leonards’ has arrived to help the Duchess.
Powder is all around the Boudoir, everyone’s sneezing.
And then arrives the Doctor! He has doubts about the ‘pouf’ hairstyle of hers.
Sounds of serenade would please the Duchess and her courtiers!
Little Gourmet pleasures.. pâté was prepared in the right moment!
And then the Duke comes home.
The secret guest arrived as well..
Ladies are trying to hide the arrival of the Guest..
Obviously the day ended with a duel..
