"The Revolutionists"

The Revolutionists
Lauren Gunderson

Jenafer Thompson, Maria Marquis, 
Meredith Hagedorn, and Melissa Jones
Lauren Gunderson imagines a sorority of sorts forming during France's 1793 Reign of Terror among four unlikely friends – three real, one fictional – with portraits of their bravery, foresight, and revolutionary spirits emerging in a dramatic play that is also very much a comedy.  In a wonderfully conceived and acted production of The Revolutionists by Dragon Productions Theatre Company -- their mostly untold/unknown stories reign forth in a play whose brilliant script speaks both truth and fiction as laughs rain down from the audience, even as the scaffold’s blade hangs over the necks of all four.
