The Revolutionists by Lauren Gunderson

When: Starts Aug. 25. Thursdays-Saturdays, 8-9:30 p.m. and Sundays, 2-3:30 p.m. Continues through Sept. 17

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution. At the height of the Reign of Terror, activist playwright Olympe de Gouges, young assassin Charlotte Corday, revolutionary Caribbean spy Marianne Angelle and former queen Marie Antoinette hang out, plot murder and try to beat back extremist insanity in Paris. This political fantasia by the author of I and You considers how far we should go to keep society from sliding off of the rails. “The Revolutionists” features Diane Hill, Melissa Beckwith, K Edmonds, and Sara Rose and is directed by David Wolber.

Price: $20 (pay-what-you-can available)
