“The Revolutionists” by Lauren Gunderson

UVa-Wise Calendar - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 8:00pm

The UVa-Wise Theater Department will present their production of “The Revolutionists” by Lauren Gunderson on the following dates and times:

Oct. 19, 20, 26, 27 at 8 p.m.

Oct. 21 at 2 p.m.

Free for UVa-Wise students/$5 for Public

Synopsis:

Four 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.
