Just before the Salem witch trials, another woman was on trial: Artemisia Gentileschi. Tortured with finger screws in 1612 to ensure she was telling the truth, her life and work is startlingly fresh today. Winner of Best Solo Drama (2018 FRIGID Festival), Artemisia’s Intent delivers a tour-de-force performance to unearth the life, work and words of 17th century painter Artemisia Gentileschi. Declared “a powerful parallel to our current cultural moment” (Culture Catch), this riveting play stars Boston University graduate Mariah Freda in a performance that is “fiery, smart and appealing” (Hi! Drama). Inspired by every proclamation of ‘me too,’ Artemisia's Intent unmasks power structures one gripping masterpiece at a time.
