Description The internationally acclaimed Cheek by Jowl (Macbeth, 2011 Spring Season) returns to BAM with John Ford's 'Tis Pity She's a Whore, one of the most controversial plays in the English theatrical canon. Siblings Giovanni and Annabella are of noble birth and madly in love. Full of the idealism of youth, their passion is all-consuming-and can only bring about their ruin. With the men of Parma ready to fight and kill for Annabella's hand, religion, morality, and madness all collide as the brother and sister's terrible secret is revealed.
