THE REVOLUTIONISTS: An Off The Shelf Staged Reading Comes to Tacoma Little Theatre
Tacoma Little Theatre's Off the Shelf program is excited to present Lauren Gunderson's, The Revolutionists, directed by Jennifer York and featuring a powerhouse of Tacoma actors. This production will play Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 7:30pm.
Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution's Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. 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. It's a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection...that ends in a song and a scaffold.
Tickets for the March 14, 2019 performance at 7:30pm are $10.00 for non TLT Members, and FREE for those who are members. Tickets may be purchased online at www.tacomalittletheatre.com, or by calling our Box Office at (253) 272-2281.
