Abstract:

"Award-winning playwright Jordan Tannahill is back with modern-day queer and feminist retellings of two momentous events one historic, one mythic. Botticelli in the Fire imagines the famed painter of The Birth of Venus, Sandro Botticelli, as an irrepressible seeker of love and pleasure caught between the powerful Medici family, the firebrand teachings of a zealot friar, and his young lover, Leonardo da Vinci. Entangled in sexual and political brinkmanship, Botticelli must choose between art and survival. In Sunday in Sodom, Lot's wife Edith tells of the Biblical destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, but set in the present day. American troops obliterate her surroundings with drone strikes and villagers turn against each other, but Edith's still focused on protecting her family, finally giving an answer as to why, when told to run and never look back, she looked back."--
