Helen of She Reads Novels does a monthly “Historical Musings” post about “all things historical fiction.” This always brings up some interesting topic for consideration, making me think about the intersection of history and literature.
This month she asks about plays based on historical events (not based on novels, e.g. Les Miserables — but directly inspired “historical drama,” as it were). Have you read or seen any such plays to recommend? I thought of a few, but I’d love to know what you come up with!
