The Archduke and the Assassin – a new play performed by Chesham Bois Catholic Players

This play is an account of an extraordinary historical event when a group of Bosnian youths wanted to free Bosnia from the occupation of the Austro-Hungarian empire. But through ill luck, fate and a fair amount of incompetence they instead managed to instigate the start of the First World War! This is a thrilling, funny, heartfelt story which also happens to be true!

By sampling some individuals, such as Christine de Pisan, Heloise, Eleanor of Aquitaine and Joan of Arc, as well as taking a look at the experiences of those less famous, we shall endeavour to answer the question: what was it like for women to live in the medieval world?
