The Carthage Theatre Department presents “The Revolutionists,” by Lauren Gunderson and directed by Nora Carroll, on Friday, Feb. 25 through Saturday, March 5, in the Wartburg Theatre.
Feb. 25-26 and March 3-5 | 7:30 p.m.
Feb. 27 | 3 p.m.
“The Revolutionists” centralizes around four real women who lived during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror (1793-1794). These courageous and daring women, playwright Olympe De Gouge, assassin Charlotte Corday, iconic former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle, are on a mission to change the world, starting with fighting for freedom and equality in Paris. Both darkly hilarious and rebellious, “The Revolutionists” is about legacy, terrorism, feminism, and friendship. In this play, laughs will be had just as much as heads are sure to roll. Armed with wit and bravery, these women will have you chanting “liberté, égalité, and sororité!” from your seat.

The Wartburg Theatre is located inside the David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Natural and Social Sciences.
