Award-winning Artemisia's Intent will bring the life and work of Italian painter Artemisia Gentileschi to the 5th Annual Providence Fringe Festival, FRINGEPVD. Before making its Rhode Island debut, Artemisia's Intent will receive a send-off performance in NYC on Thursday, July 26, 2018 at 7:30PM at The Kraine (85 East 4th Street, NY, NY 10009). Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at or at the box office.

Declared "a powerful parallel to our current cultural moment" (Culture Catch), Artemisia's Intent won Best Solo Drama at the 2018 Frigid Festival. Created with source material ranging from the 1612 rape trial of 17th century Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi to Taylor Swift's 2017 assault trial, this solo show stars 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.
