SYNOPSIS

Four badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. A playwright, an assassin, a former queen, and spy hang out and try to beat back the extremist havoc in 1793 Paris. A dream-tweaked comedy about legacy, art, activism, feminism, chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world.

Beneath the humor lies some important issues to be pondered. Who are the heroes and who are the victims in history, and why do they sometimes change over time? Does the pen dominate the sword? Why have women’s contributions not received adequate recognition, and why have they not achieved the same standing as men? Why do minorities, the poor, and the already oppressed continue to suffer abuse by the privileged?
