Claude & Marcel

a new play by Meghan Brodie

In 1937, queer artists Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore departed Paris for the Channel Island of Jersey where the two had vacationed as children. They left behind their artistic alter egos and were known on the island by their birth names, Lucy Schwob and Suzanne Malherbe, the unassuming “sisters” living at La Rocquaise. When the Nazis invaded and occupied Jersey in 1940, the women’s idyll ended and their resistance work began. This is the (mostly) true story of their extraordinary bravery.
