WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Four women lose their heads in what is described as “an irreverent, sassy” comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror in 1793 Paris.

The Revolutionists makes its Wilmington debut this week. The play was written by Lauren Gunderson. Steve Vernon is directed the Big Dawg Productions adaptation of the production.

The show is about violence, legacy, art, activism, feminism and terrorism.
