On The Ceiling

Lapo and Loti, two fresco plasterers, face another grueling day at work, performing menial labor and covering for their absent boss. In their case, however, the boss is Michelangelo, and the office is the Sistine Chapel. Certain that this work by the first-time painter is doomed to be a disaster, the two men endeavor to save the fresco, and as their world crumbles around them, they must confront the ties that bind them to the work in progress. This comedy by Nigel Planer blurs the line between master and assistant and asks what distinguishes a tradesman from an artist.

"Nigel Planer's first play is glorious, a truly original piece" – The Stage
