The Cenci is Percy Bysshe Shelley’s 1819 play about Beatrice Cenci (1577-1599), a young noblewoman condemned to death for her part in the murder of her violent father, Francesco Cenci. Abused and held prisoner by her father in the Castle of Petrella, Beatrice gains the help of her stepmother, her brother, and a friend, and together they plot to assassinate the vicious Count Cenci. Shelley’s play still resonates today, not only for its powerful depiction of Beatrice Cenci, but for its exploration of the tragic repercussions of violence against women.
