Breach Theatre’s It’s True, It’s True, It’s True will be broadcast on television this weekend.
The production, which won The Stage Edinburgh award and a Fringe First award when it ran at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018, will be screened on BBC Four at 11pm on February 9.
It will then be made available on BBC iPlayer.
Telling the story of the 1612 trial of the painter Agostino Tassi, who was accused of raping fellow artist Artemisia Gentileschi, the play is based on transcripts from the trial.
It was shot on location in a former chapel, and has been specially staged for TV, directed by Billy Barrett and Rhodri Huw.
A statement from Breach said: “We’re excited to have had this opportunity to share this part of Artemisia’s story with a wider audience. It resonates so much with events today, and we hope that audiences across the UK can engage with it and it can be part of a wider conversation.
“It’s been incredible to have been given this platform to document what is a very important piece to us, and we can’t wait for people to see it.”
It’s True, It’s True, It’s True was originally commissioned by the New Diorama Theatre, and the film is produced by Artemisia Films and Breach, and commissioned by The Space for BBC Arts.
Fiona Morris, creative director and chief executive of the Space, added: “We’re delighted to be supporting Breach in this compelling dramatisation of the trial of Agostino Tassi. Although depicting events that took place more than 400 years ago, the work examines issues that are all too relevant today and deserves to be seen and discussed by the widest possible audience.”
