The Revolutionists

By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Stephanie Lynge

  “A Comedy, a Quartet, a Revolutionary Dream Fugue, a True Story”

The Revolutionists is a hilarious witty female-powered play following four badass women during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. The story centers around French playwright Olympe de Gouges as she struggles to find her muse and change the world in the midst of a revolution. She is joined and inspired by former Queen Marie Antoinette, Charlotte Corday- an assassin with a deadly mission, and a Hatian spy, Marianne Angelle– each with a story begging to be told. Brought to you by the Hippodrome Theatre’s #HippAtHome series, The Revolutionists will be streaming Feb.12 – 18

We hope you will consider donating to help us continue bringing these amazing new experiences to our community.
