A powerful, witty and moving play exploring the dark interplay between passion and creativity ...

It's Florence, 1501, where a vast block of Carrara marble known as Il Gigante becomes the centre of conflict between two great artists when Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo compete for a prestigious commission to carve a statue of David

The result is one of the most iconic works of the Renaissance - but who was the model?

'... powerful... tremendous ... close to sublime' ~ Sunday Telegraph

'... impressive... deals with nothing less than the creative sources of art and the battle between Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci' ~ Guardian

'... a rich, ambitious play that seizes on a fascinating time and grapples with giant questions about art, creativity, integrity and beauty' ~ Financial Times
