Pentecost


A UCLan Acting BA (Hons) 3rd Year Production: "Pentecost" by David Edgar


Pentecost - A fresco similar to The Lamentation by Giotto that will revolutionize Western Art if proved to pre date the master's work is unearthed in an abandoned church in Eastern Europe. The discovery causes a dramatic struggle as representatives from the worlds of art history, religion, and politics stake their claims for the ultimate prize. The unexpected arrival of twelve refugees sets events spiralling toward an explosive climax.
David Edgar’s 1994 play resonates more today than when it won the Evening Standards Best Play of the Year Award in 1995.

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