Suzanne Savoy portrays medieval author Christine de Pizan in this one woman, 90-minute performance. Using Christine’s own words, Savoy embodies Christine, telling her personal story and the history of her time. A professional actor on screen and stage, Savoy brings authenticity and humor to the role of the first professional writer and champion of women. The North American Branch of the International Christine de Pizan Society is pleased to highly recommend this quality production. Recent performances were held at the International Medieval Congress held at Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, Michigan, May 9-10, 2019. You can contact Suzanne Savoy through her website for more information about performances: Je Christine
