Devised by Breach Theatre
The 1612 trial of Agostino Tassi for the rape of baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi is restaged by Fringe First and The Stage Edinburgh Award-winning company, Breach Theatre.
Based on surviving court transcripts, this new play dramatises the seven-month trial that gripped Renaissance Rome and asks how much has changed in the last four centuries.
Blending myth, history and contemporary commentary, this is the story of how a woman took revenge through her art to become one of the most successful painters of her generation.
