A play of politics and ideas, PENTECOST details the discovery of a painting stunningly similar to Giotto di Bondone’s The Lamentation in an abandoned church in Eastern Europe. If proven to pre-date the master’s work, the fresco will revolutionize Western Art. A dramatic power struggle ensues, as representatives from the worlds of art history, religion and politics stake their claims for the ultimate prize. The unexpected arrival of 12 asylum seekers sets events spiraling toward an explosive climax.
Performances run Sept. 30-Oct. 4. For more information visit https://behindthecurtaincincy.com/2015/08/31/pentecost-runs-sept-30-oct-4/.
