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 beautiful, uncompromising women are reimagined as the heroes of the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror in this passionate & empowering comedy.
