A famous medieval art discovery becomes a bargaining chip in a hostage situation when a multinational group of armed and desperate migrants escaping a war zone raid and occupy an old church.
When they realise that their human prisoners may be of far less value to them than the medieval fresco on the wall of the church, a tense ideological battle of wit ensues.
This première of a newly revised version of Pentecost by David Edgar presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
