ABOUT THE SHOW: THE REVOLUTIONISTS
Four beautiful, bad-a** 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 extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we go about changing the world. A play by Lauren Gunderson.
Rated R due to Strong Language and Adult Subject Matter
Trigger Warning: Gun shot, accusation of child abuse
Content Warning: Blood, flickering lights, loud sounds
