Houston's Main Street Theater will be putting on a play called The Revolutionists by Lauren Gunderson next month. The play is about the French Revolution, but would be particularly interesting to think about in the context of our study of revolution in Russia. Here's the description from the MST website:
"Marie Antoinette and Charlotte Corday walk into a bar… Okay, not exactly, but The Revolutionists is a whirling fantasia of a tale about four fiery, renegade women whose lives collide during the French Revolution. At the height of the Reign of Terror, playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, activist Marianne Angelle, and former queen Marie Antoinette plot murder, try to beat back extremist insanity in Paris, and explore how we actually go about changing the world in this irreverent, brutal comedy."
If you're interested in going as a group, fill out the form below and let me know what date you'd prefer. I'll tally up how many of us there are and be in touch about the plan. There are performances later in September (until October 3), too.
