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

Fringe First and Total Theatre Award-winning Breach (Tank, The Beanfield) restage the 1612 trial of Agostino Tassi for the rape of baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi.

Based on surviving court transcripts, Breach dramatise 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.

Part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2019, and originally commissioned by New Diorama Theatre.

“It might be set in 17th-century Italy, but the consistently exciting Breach Theatre’s new show feels uneasily current”

The Financial Times

“The Fringe is overflowing with verbatim shows, but there is little to match this latest piece from the award-winning Breach Theatre”

The Times

“A gripping courtroom drama driven by implicit feminist rage”

The Guardian
