Insight Theatre Company Presents The Revolutionists | June 28 – July 14

See the Insight Theatre’s rendition of the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror from a point of view not typically told from. Immerse yourself in the action as four beautiful, daring women lose their heads during the French Revolution. This historical comedy is both so violent and extravagant that many are left wondering which elements are factual and which are fictitious. Experience the violence, feminism, and activism that sets this play apart from other stories of this era.
