Don't miss THE REVOLUTIONISTS, Feb. 24-27, 2022!

Theatre/Sewanee presents Lauren Gunderson's The Revolutionists, directed by Emily K. Harrison

The Revolutionists is a new play about four very real women who lived boldly during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror.

Playwright Olympe De Gouges, Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle, assassin Charlotte Corday, and former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, hang out, murder Marat, lose their heads and try to beat back the extremist insanity of 1793’s Paris. What was a hopeful revolution for the people is now sinking into hyper violent hypocritical male rhetoric. It's...relative...

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's a true story.

Or total fiction.

Or a play about a play.

Or a raucous resurrection…

that ends in a song and a scaffold.

5 performances only, February 24-27 @ the Tennessee Williams Center

Tickets HERE (they're free!!!)
