Artemisia’s Intent
Scranton Fringe Festival 2018

Feeling the Kavanaugh blahs? Up for sticking it to the patriarchy this weekend?

Come see the female-inspired and female-created Artemisia’s Intent at the Scranton Fringe Festival. Winner of Best Solo Drama at the 2018 FRIGID Festival, this show is about the life and works of 17thcentury painter Artemisia Gentileschi. Her story is over four hundred years old, but “it is very much in a dialogue with today,” states director Melissa Moschitto. “Women are still fighting for fair representation and autonomy—as people and artists.” And don’t we all know it?

The show stars Mariah Freda. You can catch it at the pop-up venue at 518 Lackawanna Avenue. It deals with adult issues and is for mature audiences only.

Date and tickets:  Friday, September 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, September at 4:30 p.m.
Tickets purchase: $8-$12. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/artemisias-intent-tickets-48135597869?aff=ebapi
