In this year's 'Tragislasher' repertory season, Spicy Witch Productions investigates gendered violence and hypocritical sexual expectations. While a contemporary audience can poke fun at some of the more over-the-top puritanical sexism in 'The Revenger's Tragedy,' the 'she was asking for it' argument remains ever present in our culture. Running in repertory with 'Bonesetter: A Tragislasher,' this adaptation of Middleton's play seeks to examine the misogyny of this centuries-old text to reveal how it still governs our sexual politics today.
