The play for two actors, by an acclaimed French playwright Fabrice Melquiot dwells in a post-mortem dream space inhabited by Pollock (performed by Jim Fletcher) and Krasner (performed by Jim Fletcher) who speak directly to the audience, often on mikes, and only occasionally to each other. The facts of their lives are disclosed in no particular order, as the combative couple sort through the Pollock myth. This play might be called “a contemporary tragedy”, but, underlying such a classification is one fundamental inquiry which gives the piece meaning: the question of artistic creation
