Marianne Angelle......Kyrah Hairston

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, and how we actually go about changing the world. 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.

MEET THE CAST

Cindy Covington (Olympe de Gouges)

Cindy is so excited and honored to play Olympe De Gouges. She was such a badass! She was a feminist before it was cool, challenged conventional views about the role of women as citizens, and paid the ultimate price for standing up for what she believed in. This is Cindy’s fifth time on the SLP stage, her previous roles were in The Diary of Anne Frank, A Streetcar Named Desire, Tea for Three: Ladybird, Pat and Betty (Zoni Nomination role!) and most recently Crimes of the Heart. Cindy would like to tell Anthony and Mysia how much she loves them and proactively say “I’m sorry for the way I responded to you during tech-week!” Break a leg to my fellow castmates, it’s pure joy to work with such talented women. Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!
