Born female and given up for adoption, Caterina Linck fought as a soldier, was anointed a prophet and married a woman. The uncovering of her gender led to a sensational trial and public execution that gripped Christendom. From moments of surreal comedy to flashes of volcanic ferocity we are left to unpick accusation from truth and reflect upon the life of a unique, forgotten figure from European history. 'Thought provoking, important... Fanni Compton flits seamlessly between childlike sweetness and fearsome mania... her massive energy carries the play' (Female Arts.com)
