Paris, France, 1793: The Reign of Terror. Four badass women conspire, plot murder and resist extremist insanity. Join activist playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, Haitian abolitionist Marianne Angelle and former Queen Marie Antoinette as they plot, hand in glove, before each of them loses their head. This irreverent, fantastical comedy examines feminism, extremism, art and how we actually go about changing the world.
