Marie Antoinette and Charlotte Corday walk into a bar…  Okay, not exactly, but The Revolutionists is a whirling fantasia of a tale about four fiery, renegade women whose lives collide during the French
Revolution.  At the height of the Reign of Terror, playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte
Corday, activist Marianne Angelle, and former queen Marie Antoinette plot murder, try to beat back
extremist insanity in Paris, and explore how we actually go about changing the world in this irreverent, brutal comedy.

Recommended for 15 and up (strong language). Children under the age of 5 are not allowed in the theater.

Running time: Just under 2 hours (including intermission)
