Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity
About Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity
Three women—an art restorer, her nurse and their military captor—are trapped in a ravaged museum during a catastrophic hundred years war. Tasked with restoring a damaged Rembrandt painting, the women find common shreds of humanity as they try to save a small symbol of beauty in their broken world.
Holly Twyford (A Little Night Music, Sex with Strangers) and Felicia Curry (The Scottsboro Boys) star in this season’s Heidi Thomas Writers’ Initiative work, a brutal and elegant exploration of the unifying virtue of art and what things are most worth saving when the world is collapsing.
