The Revolutionists

by Lauren Gunderson, Directed by Curtis Barber

Four badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, female-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. 

Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen 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.Read more
