A God in Need of Help

A group of Venetians are tasked with carrying a large painting from Venice across the Alps to the palace of the Holy Roman Emperor. 

Along the way, a miracle occurs.  Each of the men tells his story of what happened to the bishop sent to find the truth about whether a miracle really occurred. I missed the second act, trying to avoid driving the woman in front of me crazy with coughing, but I enjoyed the first act. Strong and very different characters were presented by a strong group of actors, only two of whom we have seen before (Tony Nappo and Jonathan Seinen). 

Keith saw the second act, so I will leave him to comment on it. 

An interesting and unusual play of ideas by Sean Dixon.

Theatre junkie, who thinks live theatre is the ultimate form of living on the edge. You never know what will happen when an actor steps on the stage.

    Multiple versions of the same events again, but interestingly done. Art, religion, magic and how they relate. The end was neat, although I don’t think they pulled it off. If Rafal is something more than he seems, the acting/production didn’t make me believe it. If not, then the ending needed different handling.
    Still, I am quibbling – an interesting story well done and raising some interesting questions.
