This production is dedicated to the memory of Petrus Bertschinger, 1961 – 2015, Production Tutor at Central and Theatre Consultant. A friend to all who worked with him, he is much missed by his colleagues and students.


Eastern Europe 1994. A fresco is unearthed in an abandoned church by a local curator. Its discovery threatens to revolutionise the history of Western Art. She calls on a British scholar to corroborate her discovery, but unwittingly ignites a dramatic struggle when representatives from the world of art history, religion and politics descend upon the church to stake their claim. Amid the mounting hostilities the unexpected arrival of a group of refugees sets events spiralling toward an explosive climax.

"One of those rare works that makes you want to climb onto rooftops about its merits... Funny, frightening and deeply moving." - Daily Telegraph

Winner of the 1995 Evening Standard Award for Best New Play.
