The Memoirs of a Painted Woman is a one-woman theatrical piece that revolves around the women in some of the most famous paintings of all time. The script is a blend of the true art-history as well as fictional lives of the women and deals with the duality of the word “painted”. Through direct audience address and first person recounts from the women themselves, the piece attempts to ask the question of whether or not being a muse is as grand of a thing as it is made out to be. The works being used include: Mona Lisa, The Girl with the Pearl Earring, A Portrait of Dora Maar, American Gothic, Gala Against the Light, Self Portrait of Frida Kahlo and Marilyn Monroe.
