It's True, It's True, It's True

The tale of how one woman took revenge through her art.

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.
