In the theatre


A powerful and contemporary take on a rape trial of 1612. How much has really changed in the last four centuries?

 “And there’s blood pouring out of this man’s throat. Because these two women are beheading him - did I not mention that?”


Award-winning Breach Theatre restage the 1612 trial of Agostino Tassi for the rape of baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi.

Based on surviving court transcripts, this new play dramatises the seven-month trial that gripped Renaissance Rome. 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.

Please note: This production contains nudity, strong language and scenes some viewers may find upsetting.It also contains the use of strobe lighting. 

 “This is one of the most powerful pieces of theatre I saw in 2018. It is a perfect example of the quality and ferocity of the contemporary theatre we present at The Spring.”  Sophie Fullerlove, Director
