Olympe De Gouges: badass activist-playwright and feminist. That's how Lauren Gunderson describes her protagonist in this sparkling all-female comedy set during the French Revolution. Olympe yearns to write the great play, the one that will define her time and place in history. With the help of three other actual historical "badasses" — a spy, an assassin, and a certain soon-to-be-beheaded Queen — we come to learn how feminism, extremism, and art have the ability to shape society and change the world.
