Girl power stories have too often been few and far between but, reader, it’s 2021 and things are a-changing. For the Palo Alto Players’ 91st season, the organization hosts The Revolutionists, a female-focused comedy about four women during the French Revolution. The protagonists strive to live free and loud in the city of lights, aiming to hang out, plot to murder Jean-Paul Marat and to beat back extremism in France. All you need is a beret, a glass of Syrah and an almond croissant to dive into the heart of this modern take on an age-old tale. Vive les femmes!
