During the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror, playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity. This irreverent comedy explores violence and legacy, art and activism and how we actually go about changing the world. It's a true story – or total fiction – and a raucous resurrection of four powerful women.
A (sort of) real life comedy/tragedy for adults

Always in search of an extra meal ticket, Francis Henshall unwittingly becomes employed by two men. Unbeknownst to Francis, Roscoe Crabbe, his first employer, is actually Rachel Crabbe posing as her own dead brother, who has been killed by her boyfriend (who, of course, is Stanley Stubbers – Francis’ other employer). To prevent his two guvnors from finding out about each other, Francis simply must keep them apart. Set in 1960s England, this farce filled with mistaken identities, physical comedy and a live Skiffle band, is sure to have you laughing from beginning to end.

Fiddler on the Roof's universal theme of preserving tradition during changing times leaves audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
