Jean-Paul Marat

Jean-Paul Marat

By What's the Story? Sounds

Its 1793 and the French Revolution is in full swing. Famed political journalist Jean-Paul Marat, a voice for those who want rid of the excesses of the monarchy, is taking a meeting in his bathroom. He has a debilitating skin condition and the bath is the only place where he can find relief. It's there that the twenty-four year old Charlotte Corday finds him, claiming she has information about his political opponents but instead plunging a knife into Marat’s chest, ending the life of one of the most vocal anti-royalists of his time.
