The Revolutionists

Show Overview

by Lauren Gunderson

"Touching, timely, triumphant...heartwarming and hilarious – yet political, tough and thought-provoking." - Westerly Sun

Four bold n' bodacious women try not to lose their heads in this irreverent, rebellious, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution.

Amidst the Reign of Terror, four renegades—an assassin, a spy, a writer, and, of course, Marie Antoinette—hang out, plot murder, find friendship, and try to beat back extremist insanity in Paris.

Armed with sharp wit and even sharper knives, this comedy of liberté, égalité, and sororité considers how we actually go about changing the world.

  • “…a sassy, hold-on-to-your-seats theatrical adventure…”  – Cincinnati Enquirer
  • "...simply a brilliant script…”  — CityBeat
  • "…in this sparkling work, politics is very, very funny.” — Houston Chronicle.
  • "a scintillating gem…By turns drolly funny and affectingly poignant, then doubles back to satirical farce, then ends by bringing into stark relief the social commentary that it has been nurturing all night.” —OnStage.com

From the playwright who gave us 2018's Silent Sky.

Directed by Margo Whitcomb
