Vile Affections opens in 1620 when Mother Benedetta Carlini is about to be investigated for being a false mystic. It is eleven years before Gallileo is brought before the Holy Inquisition so there is cautious talk of a sun centric universe. During Mother Carlini's investigation the earth does, indeed, become uprooted from its usual place in the universe: the investigators uncover the first written record of a lesbian relationship. Vile Affections is based on a true story. It is part of the New York International Fringe Festival
