NO Productions Theatre (Turn of the Screw, The Woman in Black) presents Jeffrey Hatcher's fast-paced psychological thriller at the Christchurch Art Gallery.
Directed by Michael Adams (Turn of the Screw), this intense piece about art, sex, politics and truth is full of unexpected twists and surprises. Set in an interrogation room in Nazi-occupied Paris, this is a cat-and-mouse game between the great artist and a captivating female “cultural attaché” from Berlin.
“Which of these three paintings are genuine, Señor?”… When Miss Fischer (Nataliya Oryshchuk) reveals that the “genuine” Picasso pieces are destined not for an exhibition but a burning of “degenerate art”, the artist (David Allen) begins a desperate negotiation with his Nazi opponent, who turns out to be his secret admirer...
“Sex, Art, Nazis, and a classy twentieth-century icon, all wrapped up like a tasty cultural burrito” (The New York Times).
Duration is approximately 1 hour.
