The Peacock Arts Trail is delighted to bring you details of a fascinating and award winning piece of theatre at the Pound Arts Centre in Corsham…
IT’S TRUE IT’S TRUE IT’S TRUE
By Breach Theatre
At Pound Arts
Wednesday 30 October, 7.30pm
£10 for PAT participants & concessions
Now that the excitement and hard work of the Peacock Arts Trail has come to an end, there’s no better time to spend a chilled-out evening at the Pound, watching an award-winning piece of theatre about one of art history’s greatest heroines…
It’s True It’s True It’s True recreates the 1612 trial of Agostino Tassi for the rape of his students Artemisia Gentileschi, who went on to become one of the most powerful artists of the 17th Century, famed for her depictions of strong women’s triumphs over men.
This extraordinary show blends myth, history and contemporary commentary to tell the story of one woman who took revenge in her art, and ultimately questions how much has really changed in the past four centuries.
So if visual art and great theatre are your kind of thing this is one you just can’t miss. Bring your fellow artists and art lovers for an unforgettable evening at the Pound… We’re also offering £10 tickets for anyone who exhibited as part of the 2019 Peacock Arts Trail! Just give us a ring and quote P.A.T. for your bargain ticket.
