The Mugford Street Players presents A Picasso by Jeffrey Hatcher
On stage March 1-12, 2017

Co-produced by Greg Mancusi-Ungaro & John Fogle
Directed by John Fogle

A claustrophobic dance of deception

Art brushes with politics in A Picasso!

Set in a vault under the streets of German-occupied Paris in 1941, A Picasso pits the famous artist against Miss Fischer, a cultural attaché from Berlin, who must determine if paintings recently confiscated by the Nazis are real–or fake–Picassos. Only the artist can say for sure…but will he? A tango of sex, politics and power ensues…with a climactic twist.

A society renowned for fostering artistic freedom is suddenly under the jackboot of a paranoid culture at its most oppressive. In A Picasso, playwright Jeffrey Hatcher asks…what is the value of art in a world going to hell?

“Artful, remarkable and genuinely dramatic, with impressive sensitivity and wit.” —NY Daily News.
“Sex, art, Nazis, and a classy twentieth-century icon, all wrapped up like a tasty cultural burrito. Expertly done.” —Star-Ledger.
“A polished production with carefully sprung surprises.” —NY Times.
“An intense confrontational drama.” —Miami Herald.
