Not coming soon to a theatre near you

"The War of the Vendee" tells the story of armed Catholic resistance to the French revolution in the Vendee on France's Atlantic coast.   The actors are all children and teenagers, and the production is not lavish.  However, the story is worth the telling.  If you like this, you may also be interested in Balzac's "The Chouan," which concerns a related rebellion in Brittany.

Martyrs of the French Revolution, pray for us.
