On tour in secondary schools

de personne

Three friends are getting ready for Hallowe’en. Simone plans to dress as Sleeping Beauty and would love to make Philippe her Prince Charming, but he chooses instead to be a (pretty unconvincing) hunter. Eugénie, meanwhile, is disgusted with both of them for their stereotypical costumes. On the big night, the three of them go and party in an abandoned mansion in the middle of a mysterious forest. In the morning, however, they find they can’t get out: roots have grown over the doors. The party has turned into a not-very-magical fairy tale…

Princesse de personne is funny and entertaining: it also raises intelligent questions about consent, and about the social construction of gender. Just maybe all these stories about beautiful unconscious princesses being rescued by gallant knights might have something to do with our rigid ideas on male-female relations?
