Devised by Breach Theatre

The 1612 trial of Agostino Tassi for the rape of baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi is restaged by Fringe First and Total Theatre 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.
