About Reformation

Berlin. Eva learns that the celebrity artist Cranach is visiting her city. A chance meeting in the market place leads to romance with the artist's son. Eva gets the chance to model for Cranach’s latest painting, ‘The Rape of Lucrece’. When Joachim, the all-powerful Elector of Brandenburg, sees the sketches of Eva, he wants the model. Is Cranach willing to sell the human his son loves? In an age where upsetting the powerful meant obscurity or death, what's a poor girl like Eva to do? Reformation is a play about those who don't make the history books. It tells the story of a young woman who finds herself in a world where the desires of the powerful have priority. This premier production, in contemporary dress, suggests many striking contemporary resonances between Eva’s situation and Time's Up & #metoo.
