‘The Revolutionists’ by Lauren Gunderson - Florida Premiere
FAU Boca Raton Campus
Presented by Florida Atlantic University
True story? Total fiction? Or that special place where the two collide in your very own imagination? ~ Four women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set 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 hang out, plot murder and try to beat back extremist insanity in Paris. This fantasia by one of the country’s most exciting playwrights considers how we actually go about changing the world. Advisory: “The Revolutionists” is appropriate for adults and older teenage audiences. These four women may wear corsets and wigs, but they have a distinctly modern (and hilarious) sensibility when it comes to very strong adult language and ousting political tyrants.
