Macha Theatre Works presents Blood Water Paint by Joy McCullough, directed by Amy Poisson, at the 12th Avenue Arts Studio.

At a time when female artists were afforded no opportunities, Artemisia's extraordinary talent earns her the recognition of Rome's elite. Her father, Tuscan painter Orazio Gentileschi, hires a colleague to tutor his daughter. Instead, he rapes her. Refusing to stay silent about the assault, Artemisia takes her rapist to trial. Based on true events, Blood Water Paint unfolds lyrically through interactions with the women featured in Artemisia's most famous paintings, and culminates in her fierce battle to rise above the most devastating event in her life and fight for justice despite horrific consequences.
