Olympe De Gouge – badass activist playwright and feminist. Theatre nerd, excitable, passionate, a showman. Widowed and never married to ensure her personal freedom.
Marianne Angelle – 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 them all.
Marie Antoinette – pretty badass but fascinating former queen of France. Bubbly, graceful, opinionated. Totally unaware, unintentionally rude and oddly prescient. Also plays Fraternité in a mask.
Charlotte Corday – badass country girl and assassin. Very serious, hardened by righteousness, never been kissed. Has a pocket watch that she keeps checking. Also plays Fraternité in a mask.

How we do auditions
Our auditions are all “cold reads,” meaning that no preparation is necessary. If you feel inclined to get a jump on the competition, many scripts are available at The Toledo Lucas County Public Library. Headshots and résumés are not required, however, they are always welcome. We provide a brief information sheet that you will need to complete in order to audition. So what are you waiting for?!
