True story? Total fiction? You'll have so much fun deciding.
Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution. At the height of the Reign of Terror, playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, activist Angelle Ogé and former queen Marie Antoinette hang out, plot murder and try to beat back extremist insanity in Paris. This world premiere fantasia by one of the country’s most exciting young playwrights considers how we actually go about changing the world.
Advisory: The Revolutionists is appropriate for adults and older teenage audiences. These four women may wear corsets and wigs, but they have a distinctly modern (and hilarious) sensibility when it comes to very strong adult language and ousting political tyrants.
RUNNING TIME: Less than 2 hours with one intermission.
