About the show:

France’s fight for equality and freedom propels itself to modern times with this bold, brave, and blisteringly funny new work about feminism, legacy, and standing up for one’s beliefs. Four uncompromising women are reimagined as the heroes of the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror in this passionate & empowering comedy.

About the roles: The ages suggested below are just that – suggestions. I will consider actors outside of these age ranges.

OLYMPE De Gouges – badass activist playwright and feminist. Theatre nerd, excitable, passionate, a showman. Widowed and never married to ensure her personal freedom. 30s/40s

CHARLOTTE Corday – badass country girl and assassin. Very serious, hardened by righteousness, never been kissed. 20s/30s

MARIE Antoinette – pretty badass but fascinating former queen of France. Bubbly, graceful, opinionated, totally unaware, unintentionally rude, and oddly prescient. Never had a real friend. 30s/40s

MARIANNE Angelle – A badass black woman in Paris. She is from the Caribbean, a free woman, a spy working with her husband, Vincent Tough, classy, vigilant, the sanest one of them all. 30s

 

About the auditions:

For the audition, actors will need to prepare two, one-minute long, contemporary monologues- one comedic and one dramatic. Please respect the one-minute time length. It’s good to leave the director wanting to see more! The material should show the gamut of your range as all actors must be funny, vulnerable, and bold. Callbacks will consist of reading sides which will be posted on Wednesday with the callback list.
