Dramatis Personae Dante Gabriel Rossetti (m), Lizzie Rossetti (f)
Synopsis “Dante Gabriel, addresses the audience about the founding of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in Victorian England and of the love and inspiration he found in Lizzie, his model and wife. Lizzie, outside Gabriel's hearing, injects witheringly her side of the story: his adultery, disregard, and callous treatment that eventually drove her to suicide.
Comment “This is essentially a one-man show with commentary by a ghost. The play explores art history and human nature.”
