Overview


Synopsis

A Picasso is a two-person play based on Picasso’s years in Paris during World War 2. Pablo Picasso has been summoned from his favorite café by German occupation forces to a storage vault across the city for an interrogation. At the vault, he meets Miss Fischer, a beautiful "cultural attaché" from Berlin. Planning an exhibit, she is attempting to discover which of the three Picasso paintings recently "confiscated" by the Nazis from their Jewish owners are real. At first Picasso agrees to her request, confirming that the three pictures are indeed his own. But when it turns out the "exhibition" is actually a burning of "degenerate art," Picasso becomes desperate to save his work.
