Rubber City Theatre’s production of “The Revolutionists” features four beautiful, badass women, who lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror.
The production, which runs through Sunday Sept. 22, takes place Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2:30 p.m.
Rubber City Theatre is located at 243 Furnace St., in Akron.
In “The Revolutionists,” 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. The 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.
The play is directed by Katie Wells, and cast members include Chelsea Cannon, Chennelle Bryant-Harris, Kyla Williger and Jane Medoro.
Admission is $23 to $25, and student rush tickets are available, walkup only, one hour before the show, during which students with ID may get a ticket for $5, pending availability.
On Thursdays and Sundays, anyone 18 and younger may see the show for free. Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult. These are walkup only and pending availability.
The production is geared toward ages 13 and up due to strong language and mature themes.
