The Revolutionists: A Comedy, a Quartet, a Revolutionary Dream Fugue, A True Story by Lauren Gunderson
February 25 & 26 at 7:30pm, Mar. 4 at 8:30pm, Mar. 5 at 7:30pm

Dreamwell Theatre is thrilled to announce our return to live theater. This spring we will finally get to share our production of The Revolutionists: A Comedy, A Quartet, A Revolutionary Dream Fugue, A True Story by Lauren Gunderson, directed by Matthew Brewbaker. Performances will be held February 25-26 and March 4-5 at The Artifactory (120 N. Dubuque St., Iowa City, formerly Public Space One).

Symopsis:
Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.

OLYMPE de GOUGES – Kristina Rutkowski
CHARLOTTE CORDAY – Jennifer Beall
MARIE-ANTOINETTE – Eva Giacomo
MARIANNE ANGELLE – Sarahann Kolder

Experience Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 in Iowa CityJune 10 - July 10th

The Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 red frames, each in the shape of a small house, set alongside one another will be placed in three main areas of the pedestrian mall. Inside each “casa”, there is a swing and a ring of lights lining the bottom. When the house is empty, the lights glow dimly to welcome the next visitor. Once someone steps inside, the lights release a more powerful glow, indicating that someone is home.
