Four badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright and passionate feminist Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out together, tell their stories, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. As the hope-filled French Revolution for social and political equality declined into violent terrorism, these feisty women lived boldly. This dream-tweaked comedy about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, explores how we change the world. It’s historical truth, mixed with total fiction. It’s social commentary, with a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.
