Suzanne Savoy’s tour-de-force, Je Christine, is an intimate depiction of Christine de Pizan’s life, when climate change, epidemics, civil unrest, political division, and foreign invasion devastated the country. Born in Venice in 1364 and married at age 15 to a French nobleman, she was widowed at twenty-five, after which she supported her mother, children and nieces through her writing. Her works include courtly poetry, a book on warfare and chivalry, the official biography of King Charles V, and her beautifully illuminated The Treasure of the City of Women.
Suzanne Savoy is an educator, actor and designer. A graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada, Ms. Savoy has performed in numerous productions of classical works. As an educator, she created, designed, and directed productions based on classical literature.
