The Revolutionists

THE REVOLUTIONISTS

September 18 - October 11, 2020

By Lauren Gunderson

Directed by Nancy Curran Willis

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.

The Revolutionists is a hilarious and female forward way to kick off the season and creates a great synergy in the local community as Concord celebrates modern revolutions. Gunderson’s writing is sassy, witty, and at times brilliant. It takes politics and makes it wildly raucous, which is perfect considering the timing.
