The Worth of Women
KIT presents the US premiere of The Worth of Women, adapted from Moderata Fontes text, translated by Virginia Cox. The Worth of Women presents seven women of different ages and experience dialoging about gender equality and the responsibility of husbands, fathers, brothers and sons.

Moderata Fonte was the pseudonym of Modesta Pozzo (155592), a Venetian woman who was something of an anomaly. Neither cloistered in a convent nor as liberated from prevailing codes of decorum as a courtesan might be, Pozzo was a respectable, married mother who produced literature in genres that were commonly considered "masculine"the chivalric romance and the literary dialogue
.

Published in 1600, in the The Worth of Women Fonte creates a conversation among seven Venetian noblewomen. The dialogue explores nearly every aspect of women's experience in both theoretical and practical terms. These women take as their broad theme men's curious hostility toward women and possible cures.

The Worth of Women is directed by Jay Stern in collaboration with Laura Caparrotti, original music by Erato Kremmyda, and lyricist Maggie-Kate Coleman. Set and Costumes by Lauren Page Russell. The cast includes Carlotta Brentan, Laura Caparrotti, Tali Custer, Aileen Lanni, Marta Mondelli, Irene Turri, and Annie Watkins. Assistant to the directors: Mario Merone.
