Revolutionize. Transform. Revolt. You are not to do as you are told. Revolt. She said. Revolt again. A wicked and frank education in contemporary feminism, language, and gender politics, Alice Birch’s patriarchy-smashing absurdist play is anything but well behaved and like nothing you’ve ever seen onstage. Intersecting and interconnected vignettes turn the dominant male paradigm on its head.
"Bobbin Ramsey directs the piece with a sense of joyful freedom and anger... the frenetic pacing combined with the talents of a crack design team resulted in a bizarre, gorgeous mess." - Gemma Wilson, City Arts Magazine
"...in Washington Ensemble Theatre’s breakneck staging directed by Bobbin Ramsey, 'Revolt' is an ecstatic satire, as funny as it is provocative and as moving as it is academic." - Dusty Somers, The Seattle Times
"Director Bobbin Ramsey keeps the pace quick and expertly orders the chaos." - Rich Smith, The Stranger
"Exquisitely distressing piece of protest theater... remarkable work." - Mark Baumgarten, Seattle Weekly
