The Mistress Cycle archiveI>Mistress: a woman who illicitly occupies the place of wife - practically speaking, anyone who comes second. Jezebel, Siren, Vixen, Enchantress, Adulteress. A musical tale of sacrifice, destruction and renewal, The Mistress Cycle is the story of Tess, a struggling 30-something photographer living in Manhattan, who is made an offer by a wealthy, older man to "keep her" as his mistress. As she wrestles with his proposition, Mistresses from different eras and cultures come to tell their stories and share their points-of-view: Ching, a 14-year-old concubine from 12th century China; Diane de Poitiers, the mistress of Henri II in France in the 1500's; Lulu White, a bordello Madame in turn-of-the-last-century New Orleans; and Anais Nin, the famous diarist and infamous sexual adventuress. By the end of the show, Tess has learned so much about these women, about mistresshood, about herself - and has made her decision.
