The Revolutionists
By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Martha Hearn

The Revolutionists is a new play about four very real women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe De Gouge, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, loose their heads and try to beat back the extremist insanity in the Paris of 1793. What was a hopeful revolution for the people is now sinking into hyper violent hypocritical male rhetoric. However will modern audiences relate.

Auditions for The Revolutionists will be held on June 17th and 18th, 2024 at Trustus Theatre. The character list is as follows:

OLYMPE DE GOUGES: 38. Badass activist playwright and feminist. Theatre nerd, excitable, passionate, a showman. Widowed and never remarried to ensure her personal freedom.

CHARLOTTE CORDAY: 25. Badass country girl and assassin. Very serious, hardened by righteousness, has never been kissed. Has a pocket watch she keeps checking. Also plays FRATERNITE.

MARIE ANTOINETTE: 38. Less badass but fascinating former queen of France. Bubbly, graceful, opinionated, totally unaware, unintentionally rude, and oddly prescient. Never had a real friend. Also plays FRATERNITE.

MARIANNE ANGELLE: 30s. A badass black woman in Paris. She is from the Caribbean, a free woman, a spy working with her husband, Vincent. Tough, classy, vigilant, the sanest one of them all.
