Breach Theatre: It’s True, It’s True, It’s True

Date:Thu 03 Oct
Price:Pay What You Feel

Breach’s Fringe First and The Stage Edinburgh Award-winning production restages the 1612 trial of Agostino Tassi for the rape of baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi. 

Based on surviving court transcripts, this 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. 

★★★★★ “Consistently exciting…uneasily current”  The Financial Times
