Viragos: a play with found text
VIRAGOS follows a group of young Englishwomen as they rehearse a play at The Institute—Mary Ward’s school for girls founded in early 17th-century France. Through their rehearsals, the girls test the boundaries of art, science, love, and politics, as the shadow of the Inquisition looms. Verbatim text illuminates this factually-inspired fiction of a story too-long buried by history.
Intentionally flexible cast size: 6 – 30+ performers, female-centric ensemble
