Visionary, female-driven and timeless productions challenge our audience to see women in a new light. We tell dynamic stories  that empower women and boldly invite our audience to choose each season’s world premiere from our annual Fall Festival, Her Story Is Our Story. Our namesake, Artemisia Gentileschi, was a Baroque artist whose paintings depicted violence with fierce honesty and elegance. For centuries after her death, her art was attributed to men. Feminist curators in the late 1970’s rediscovered Artemisia, who is now considered the greatest female painter prior to the modern period. We promise you emotional, relatable stories told from a woman’s point-of-view. Join us to experience fierce female-driven theatre like you’ve never seen before.
