Celebrate Bastille Day by attending the Main Library’s staged reading of The Revolutionists, Lauren Gunderson’s thought-provoking comedy about women active in the French Revolution.
In Paris in 1793, at the height of the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror, mobs are forming, heads are rolling, and Olympe de Gouges is writing a comedy. When an assassin, a spy, and an infamous former queen knock on Olympe’s door, these badass women must decide their role in the revolution. Will they be remembered on the pages of history? Or will their time be cut short by Madame Guillotine?
Written by San Franciscan Lauren Gunderson (America’s most produced living playwright), The Revolutionists is based on real women, real executions, and real terror. . . but remember it’s a comedy.
