by John Ford, directed by Alex Lippard
Set in Parma, Italy, 'TIS PITY SHE'S A WHORE tells the tale of an incestuous love between Giovanni and his sister Annabella that ends in spectacular violence. Written in 1630, this controversial story of lust, jealousy and betrayal is shockingly modern. Playwright John Ford wrestles with those enduring forces of evil which plague us today: driving teens to slaughter jeering classmates, prompting clergy to cover up scandals, and deluding politicians who justify hypocrisy as righteousness.
