The Revolutionists by Lauren Gunderson

September 8, 2023 at 7:30 pm September 23, 2023 at 9:30 pm PDT

A new play about four very real women who lived boldly in France 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, lose their heads and try to beat back the extremist insanity in the Paris of 1793. What was a hopeful revolution for the people is now sinking into hyper-violent hypocritical male rhetoric. However will modern audiences relate? 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. Directed by Lauren Love.

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.

Dates: Sept 8 at 7:30pm, Sept 9 at 7:30pm, Sept 10 at 2:00pm. Sept 14 at 7:30pm, Sept 15 at 7:30pm, Sept 16 at 7:30pm, Sept 17 at 2:00pm, Sept 20 at 2:00pm, Sept 21 at 7:30pm, Sept 22 at 7:30pm, Sept 23 at 7:30pm
