THE REVOLUTIONISTS

By Lauren Gunderson

Liberté, égalité… sororité! It’s the French Revolution and heads will roll – including playwright Olympe de Gouges’ and her muses: assassin Charlotte Corday, Caribbean freedom fighter Marianne Angelle, and the one-and-only Marie “Let Them Eat Cake” Antoinette. Lauren Gunderson makes her Pittsburgh debut with this radical and metatheatrical comedy about four badass women out to change the world.
