The Abbey is in trouble – and only Hrotsvit’s play can save them! The canonesses need to impress Emperor Otto (who is visiting tonight!) with a performance… by Hrotsvit, the first western woman who ever dared to write a play. Embroiled in lustful conflicts, the stress of daily prayers, and impassioned moral arguments, can these women save Gandersheim Abbey from male takeover? Find out in this hot goss from 10th Century Saxony!
