Naples, 1606. Inside an unfinished church, a painting is emerging from the darkness - Caravaggio’s first since he killed a man and fled Rome. Bootle, the present day. A retired dock worker teaches his grandson, as their community disintegrates around them. Anders Lustgarten’s visceral new play confronts the dangerous necessity of compassion, in a world where it is in short supply.

This production contains violence and scenes of a sexual nature.

Running time: 2 hrs 39 mins + 20 mins interval
