Springfield College Theater Presents “The Revolutionists”
March 31 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
A William Simpson Fine Arts Series event
By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Martin Shell
Appleton Auditorium, Fuller Arts Center
Four badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. A playwright, an assassin, a former queen, and a Caribbean spy walk into a room and attempt to save the soul of France while avoiding the edge of the guillotine’s blade. 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.
“…a sassy, hold-on-to-your-seats theatrical adventure…wonderfully wild and raucous…”
“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.”
This event is open to the public.
