The Revolutionists – auditions September 30
The Revolutionists, a comedic quartet by Lauren Gunderson
Sunday, September 30. Additional dates may be added if needed.
“Sometimes, a revolution needs a woman’s touch.” – Marie Antoinette
In this sassy, hold-on-to-your-seats theatrical adventure, four beautiful, badass women hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity of 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 is a true story. Or total fiction. Or a raucous resurrection… that ends in a song and a scaffold.
Lauren Gunderson is one of the top 20 most-produced playwrights in the United States, and in 2016 was America’s most produced living playwright. Gunderson was awarded the Lanford Wilson Award by the Dramatists Guild Council in 2016.
