“It’s simply a brilliant script.” – CityBeat (Cincinnati)
“a sassy, hold-on-to-your-seats theatrical adventure!” – Cincinnati Enquirer
“THE REVOLUTIONISTS resembles a blindingly scintillating gem-like puzzle…By turns it is drolly funny and affectingly poignant, then doubles back to satirical farce, then ends by bringing into stark relief the social commentary that it has been nurturing all night.” – FloridaTheaterOnStage.com
June 5th to June 30th, 2019
Four badass rebel women lose their heads in this irreverent comedy set during the French Revolution. This historical fiction takes a modern twist on art and legacy, feminism and activism, and what it actually takes to change the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Welcome to the extremist insanity of 2019, America. Oops. Sorry. 1793, Paris.
