Though set in Paris in 1793, The Revolutionists is a contemporary story of sisterhood as a means of survival. Four women—a playwright, a queen, an assassin, and a spy become allies in the face of patriarchy. Inspired by the lives of real women—Charlotte Corday, Olympe de Gouges, and Marie Antoinette—playwright Lauren Gunderson also invents Marianne, a freed Haitian woman fighting to end slavery in the Caribbean.  Realizing their only power is in telling their stories, they do and so claim their place in history.
