The Revolutionists

Dateline: Paris, 1793, during the Reign of Terror − the time when a death sentence and the guillotine became the norm. Olympe de Gouge, author and activist, is trying to write a play about the French Revolution from a woman’s point of view. In this effort she is advised, prodded, and spurred on by three brassy, impatient, and insistent women: Marianne (a black rebel from the Caribbean), Charlotte Corday (a gutsy, single-minded assassin), and Marie-Antoinette (ex-Queen of France). This historical fantasy is a passionate, raucous, irreverent, and often hilarious anthem for four female voices, striving to be heard over the man-run horror show that they see around them.
… As Marie Antoinette puts it: “Sometimes a revolution needs a woman’s touch”.
