Radio 3 just broadcast this... here or if you miss it/are not in the UK, I taped it here (and will take down if that's not ok, just thought people might be interested...!)
I have no idea quite how much it has been adapted - I suspect a fair bit. It's been a few years since the full flood of my French Rev obsession and I can't remember much from my reading of the play back then so I don't even know where to begin talking about this, but basically I'm so glad it was on and gaah I do not have time to start re obsessing and researching right now and yet that is what I'm very tempted to do.......
Haha. I could ramble at great length. OK. Two points:
1. You do have to know that this is a very sort of zoomed in story about the Datonists and that Robespierre is basically there as antagonist, though not villain, exactly. Danton himself is brilliant to listen to (though not necessarily quite as I'd imagine...?) ......but as a result he kind of completely eclipses EVERYONE ELSE in terms of personality ^^ or maybe that's just me, wanting more Camille.
2. ...Saint-Just makes me laugh so much with his ninja sneaking skillz.
