The Revolutionists

September 22, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Written by multiple award-winning playwright, Lauren Gunderson, four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright, Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection… that ends in a song and a scaffold!

(If this blurb doesn’t sell tickets… nothing will.)
[R]: Adult humor, content, and situations that may be inappropriate for those under 18.
Trigger Warnings: Smart women, well-informed humor.
