Pentecost

By David Edgar

Paperback £10.99£8.79

EPUB £10.99£7.14

A valuable fresco is discovered in a church in war-torn Eastern Europe. As international and local art historians argue over who should claim ownership, the fate of the painting becomes a metaphor for the future of the emergent nations of Eastern Europe.

Winner of the 1995 Evening Standard Play of the Year Award

Pentecost is part of David Edgar's trilogy of plays about post-Communist Eastern Europe, which also includes The Prisoner's Dilemma and The Shape of the Table.
