Madame Sans-Gêne

Madame Sans-Gêne is a historical comedy-drama by Victorien Sardou and Émile Moreau, about the life of Cathérine Hübscher, an outspoken 18th-century laundress who became the Duchess of Danzig. It premiered at the Théâtre du Vaudeville, Paris, on 27 October 1893, starring Réjane in the title role. The play was revived many times in France and toured in the English provinces in 1897. It was also adapted as an opera, in 1915, and several times for film.
