MCT PROPOSAL - The Revolutionists

Updated: Nov 14, 2022

The Revolutionists by Lauren Gunderson

Proposed by director Leigh Matthews Bock


Play Synopsis

The Revolutionists is a new play about four very real women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror.

Playwright Olympe De Gouge, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, lose their heads and try to beat back the extremist insanity in the Paris of 1793. What was a hopeful revolution for the people is now sinking into hyper violent hypocritical male rhetoric. However will modern audiences relate?

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.
