Juxtaposed against the background of the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror, this raucous comedy portrays a sisterhood of four women: a playwright, an assassin, a former queen and a rebel. The play touches on themes of legacy, activism, terrorism and feminism to suggest how women can change the world. Though set in 1793, this production uses language, culture and references to contemporary culture to highlight the relevance of such themes today.
“…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
