How hard to bear is youth in isolation

Venice, early 1300s. The Duke is not happy with the state of his crumbling city, particularly San Marco’s church for which he seeks an architect to oversee its renovation.

The hapless Florentine he hires wins his favour and has soon integrated himself and his apprentice son into Venetian society. However, their new-found wealth gets the better of them and they quickly find themselves in debt. The only solution is to take advantage of their position by robbing from the very city state that employs them.

An exuberant verse play written in the mode of a Renaissance comedy and given a modern, physical presentation.
