THE CHARACTERS

All are French women, All are beautiful, All are about to be beheaded…

 

OLYMPE DE GOUGES – 38.  Badass activist playwright and feminist.  Theatre nerd, excitable, passionate, a showman.  Widowed and never remarried to ensure her personal freedom.

 

CHARLOTTE CORDAY – 25. Badass country girl and assassin.  Very serious, hardened by righteousness, never been kissed.  Has a pocket watch she keeps checking.

 

MARIE-ANTOINETTE – 38. Less badass but fascinating former queen of France.  Bubbly, graceful, opinionated, totally unaware, unintentionally rude, and oddly prescient.  Never had a real friend.

 

MARIANNE ANGELLE – 30. A badass black woman in Paris.  She is from the Caribbean, a free woman, a spy working with her husband, Vincent.  Tough, classy, vigilant, the sanest of the them all.
