The Revolutionists – Aug 13 & 14, 2021
TCP After Dark is a recent venture of Tahlequah Community Playhouse, Inc., with alternate venues and a variety of theatrical offerings for mature audiences. The next production will be a staged reading presentation of The Revolutionists by Lauren Gunderson, and directed by Peggy Kaney and Sandra Becker. This particular play includes strong language.
Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. 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. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.
The cast includes: Misti Hanrahan-Biggs, Shelia Fritts, Tammy Schmidt, and Laura Carter. There will be three performances: A 7:00pm show on Friday, August 13, 2021 and a 2:00pm matinee and 7:00pm evening show on Saturday, August 14, 2021. The performances will be held at the First Presbyterian Church, 315 E. Shawnee, Tahlequah OK. Admission will be by donation with no advance tickets or reservations.
