Heading to the Edinburgh Fringe play about the real life story of a transperson legally killed for her sexuality.
WHY GET INVOLVED?
People have been fighting the powers that be over LGBT issues throughout history, but very little is known known about pre-20th Century struggle. Shift Productions are presenting theatre show LINCK at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013 after a triumphant run at The Last Refuge to tell the story of Caterina Linck - the only woman to be executed for sodomy.
ABOUT THE PLAY
LINCK explores sexuality and its relationship with government and the battle between one’s desire and duty. Born female and given up for adoption, Linck fought as a soldier, was anointed a prophet and married a woman. The uncovering of Linck’s gender led to a sensational trial and public execution that gripped a nation. As we shift 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.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
Most of our costs have been covered through profits from our triumphant London launch at The Last Refuge - however, we require a little bit more to propell the show up to Edinburgh. This will mainly cover accomodation and subsistence for our actors. We're so close!
