ABOUT THE SHOW

“My reason tells me now that ‘tis as common
To err in frailty as to be a woman.” (IV.iii)

Annabella and Giovanni, a pair of siblings that are well-respected in Parma, are hopelessly in love and forced to fight for each other as society forbids their union.

‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore in the Loeb Ex seeks to explore gender, language, and the body: how the three are mapped onto each other to create violence and to blur the lines between public and private, harming female-bodied and femme-expressing individuals’ autonomy and safety.

Please be advised that this production will include violence, mysogynistic language, physical/emotional abuse, suggestion of sexual assault, and incest.
