"It’s True, It’s True, It’s True"

This gripping dramatisation of a 1612 rape trial brought by the gifted painter Artemisia Gentileschi roars down the ages centuries after it shocked renaissance Rome.

When Agostino Tassi, the pope’s favourite artist, was accused of raping 15-year-old Gentileschi, the ensuing seven-month case was widely publicised. It’s True, It’s True, It’s True interweaves jaw-dropping court transcripts with history, myth, contemporary insight and moments of satire to ask: how much has really changed?

Filled with ire and using modern language, the devised show shines a spotlight on a remarkable woman who went on to triumph through her art.

Ages: 15+ N.B. Contains descriptions of sexual assault
