Previews for The Revolutionists will be Feb. 21-22 with performances Feb. 23-24 and Feb. 28 - March 3, 2018, in the UNO Theatre, Weber Fine Arts Building. The house opens at 7:00 P.M. with a 7:30 P.M. curtain for all performances. Tag Nite Out will be Feb. 21, and audio description will be available on March 1.
Four beautiful, butt-kicking women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set 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 hang out, plot murder and try to beat back extremist insanity in Paris. A fantasia by one of the country’s most exciting young playwrights considers how we actually go about changing the world.
Advisory: These four women may wear corsets and wigs, but they have a distinctly modern (and hilarious) sensibility when it comes to very strong adult language and ousting political tyrants.
Tickets are free for all UNO students. For general audiences, preview nights are $6 and all others are $16. For tickets, visit the UNO Theatre website or call the box office at 402.554.PLAY. The UNO Theatre Box Office accepts all major credit cards.
