A glass of water by Eugène Scribe( Book )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Don't look now, but... what dramatic form would you expect the French to impose on English history? Bedroom farce, of course. Good Queen Anne and the Churchills, Winston's ancestors, are here in Eugene Scribe's 19th-century classic, riding high as the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough. While the Duke is struggling against the armies of Louis XIV, the Duchess is trying to inveigle Abigail Churchill's beau into bed, not knowing the girlish Queen wants him too. It's a perfect opportunity for the wily politician Bolingbroke. As seen through French eyes, these English historical characters would never recognize themselves. In fact, they'd be shocked!
