About the Play: THE REVOLUTIONISTS is a brutal comedic quartet about four very real women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution. Playwright Olympe De Gouge, assassin Charlotte Corday, and former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, loose their heads, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in revolutionary Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, feminism and terrorism, art and how we actually go about changing the world. A raucous resurrection that ends in a song and a scaffold.
