Fifteenth-century painter Sandro Botticelli is devoted to beauty, sensuality, and pleasure; a devotion tested by the arrival of a conservative priest in Florence, leading a populist revolution. When Botticelli’s full-throttle, decadent ways catch up to him, will the famed artist sacrifice his work...or the life of his young apprentice Leonardo Da Vinci? From award-winning Canadian playwright, Jordan Tannahill, comes a searing and ambitious story that sets our present political moment ablaze.
“I'm thrilled Botticelli in the Fire is going to be part of such an exciting season at MTC, and hope it ignites hearts and loins in the Bay Area.” —Jordan Tannahill
