    Whitefish Theatre Company presents "The Revolutionists" (Cabaret Theatre)

    Date: May 28, 2020 - May 31, 2020

    Event Description Greetings from the French Revolution where heads will roll!
    In this fresh and fast-paced comedy by award-winning playwright Lauren Gunderson, a quartet of beautiful, badass women raise hell in Paris during the French Revolution. The Revolutionists are real-life characters that include playwright Olympe De Gouge, assassin Charlotte Corday, Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle, and the one-and-only Marie “Let Them Eat Cake” Antoinette who conspire to avoid losing their heads -- literally -- during the insanity of the Reign of Terror. This bold and blisteringly funny play is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world.

    “…a sassy, hold-on-to-your-seats theatrical adventure…[Gunderson] has created a play that is wonderfully wild and raucous…It’s a wild ride, filled with verbal gymnastics that come racing at you so quickly it’s occasionally hard to keep up. Listen closely, though, and hang on tight. If you do, you’ll be treated to an invigorating and enlightening journey.” —Cincinnati Enquirer
     
    “…in this sparkling work, politics is very, very funny. [Gunderson] knows it’s tricky to present entertaining, yet socially driven art, but she does so without losing the rhythm and forward momentum of her characters…These are hilarious and lovable women trapped in a history with a somber final act.” —Houston Chronicle
     
    “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.
