The Revolutionists Premiers at Darkhorse Theater

To mark the International Women’s Day, Women in Theater (WIT) Nashville brings to stage Lauren Gunderson’s acclaimed play The Revolutionists, directed by Stephanie Dillard, who also serves as the board president of WIT.

The Revolutionists is a comedy that depicts the fictional meeting of real people: playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons!) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle, who face their disagreements and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 French Revolution Paris. This is a comedy about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisterhood, and how we actually go about changing the world. 

Playwright Lauren Gunderson is one of the most produced playwrights in the United States since 2015, topping the list thrice including 2022/23.

Women in Theatre (WIT) Nashville was founded in 2023 to showcase the incredible talent, stories, and voices of women in the performing arts. It strives to create a vibrant and inclusive artistic space that champions the unique perspectives of women.

Performances are at the Darkhorse theater, March 8-9. For tickets and more information:
