Sans l’avis du peintre - Without the painter’s opinion

The play centres on a painting by Caravaggio, Madonna of the Papal Grooms. The three people depicted in the painting -the mother, the child and the other person- come out of the painting to tell their story. The mother kills a snake with her bare foot in order to protect her son, with the third person looking on. The scene depicted in the painting is relived by the protagonists.
