Additional Info

The deathbed delusions of Bob Sarafin, a contemporary New York shirt designer and artist manque, are portrayed in a dreamlike narrative that weaves the imagined story of Leonardo da Vinci with that of Sarafin's father, an art restorer in Milan during World War II. As the nucleus of contemporary characters, people who are close to Sarafin, are called on to inhabit an eclectic selection of historical figures ranging from Sigmund Freud to Ezra Pound, The Last Supper Restoration becomes a mediation on the power of secrecy, betrayal and the possibility for human transcendence. Performed at the Kennedy Center as part of the American College Theatre Festival, this innovative work won the 1997 National Student Playwriting Award and the National AIDS Fund/CDFA Vogue Initiative.
