Synopsis: Although set during the French Revolution at the time of the Fall of the Bastille and the march on Versailles, the author explained, "The historic events and those who made them are missing from Blues, Whites and Reds, but their ideas, their dreams are present in the 'Popular Prints' - short little tableaux in which these dreams and ideas are paraded in the form of a popular puppet show..."
