The revolution takes place this weekend, as the Weakley Playhouse theatre troupe brings the Lauren Gunderson play The Revolutionists to the stage. 

The play involves four very real women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. According to the playwright, the 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.
