SHORT SYNOPSIS:  

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent comedy set during the French Revolution. 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.

CASTING THE FOLLOWING ROLES:

NOTE: All Ethnicities are encouraged to audition for any role except for the role of MARIANNE which will be cast with a black actor.

No accents are required for this production (with the possible exception of Marianne).

OLYMPE DE GOUGES (F, 30s – 60s) Badass activist playwright and feminist. Theatre nerd, excitable, self-centered, passionate.  Widowed and never remarried to ensure her personal freedom. 

MARIANNE ANGELLE (F, 20s – 40s) A badass Black woman originally from the Caribbean.  A free woman and a spy, working with her husband.  Tough, classy, intelligent and totally sane.

CHARLOTTE CORDAY (F, 18 – 40s) Badass country girl and assassin. Very serious, hardened by righteousness, never been kissed and just a tiny bit short of batshit crazy. Also plays FRATERNITE (male oppressor) in a mask.

MARIE-ANTOINETTE (F, 20s – 50s) Less badass, but fascinating former queen of France. Bubbly, graceful, glamorous, opinionated, and often totally unaware.  Never had a real friend until now and never realized she needed one.  Also plays FRATERNITE (male oppressor) in a mask.
