Boston Playwrights' Theatre

June 9-10-11

 

The show is series of monologues about historical Italian women who were victims of violence, abuse and patriarchy.

 

Monologues from:

Michela Murgia (b. 1972, writer and feminist activist) extracts from “Stai Zitta”

Franca Rame (1929 - 2013, actress and feminist activist), “The Rape”

Artemisia Gentileschi (1593 - 1653, painter), extracts from court deposition

Gostanza (1535 - circa 1600, woman accused of witchcraft), extracts from court deposition

Beatrice (1266 - 1290, woman loved by poet Dante Alighieri), by Stefano Benni

 

The goal is to raise awareness about the condition of women, throughout history, in a mostly male-dominated society.

 

The performance is in Italian with English subtitles.

 

All ticket revenue will be donated to two charities:

 

Casa Myrna, Boston’s largest provider of shelter and support services to

survivors of domestic violence.

 

Mabel Center for Immigrant Justice, whose mission is to provide expert

pro-bono legal services to asylum-seeking families, women and children

that have survived unimaginable violence in pursuit of safety in the

United States.
