THE REVOLUTIONISTS, a fast-paced, comedic quartet by 2017’s most produced playwright, follows four very real women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Former queen Marie Antoinette, playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle collide in this true story, total fiction, and play about a play. Join us for this passionate and decisive call to action through the true (and sometimes not) stories of these four extraordinary women. Company member Bryan Wakefield directs the Chicago premiere of Lauren Gunderson’s thrilling new play.
