Written by Charles Borkhuis and directed by award-winning director Michael Arabian. This reading features Herbert Siguenza, a founding member of the performance group Culture Clash, the most produced Latino theatre troupe in the United States.
Based on Picasso's "Blue Period, this play takes place in Paris in 1900, as two young Spanish painters take to the dazzling bohemian streets of Montmartre to seek fame and fortune, but they soon find themselves broke and disillusioned. Through an entanglement with a provocative French model, Picasso and Casagemas begin a sordid journey through the corridors of a dark tragedy that will lead to Picasso’s macabre “Blue Period” and mark him for the rest of his life.
