Guernica, a play is set in Picasso’s studio – through a series of imaginings Picasso meets five people killed in the aerial attack on market day in Guernica on 26th April 1937. Erika Luckert the Canadian play write has adapted each of the human figures in Picasso’s Guernica into a character. The play culminates in a moment where each of the characters takes up a pose from the painting, at this moment Picasso begins to paint.
