Nigel Planer's debut play, this is a comedy about the painting of the Sistine Chapel starring Ralf Little and Ron Cook, published alongside the West End opening. This time the Pope has surely backed a loser, the man he has put in charge of painting The Sistine Chapel is simply not up to the job - after all, he's a sculptor with next to no experience of painting. He didn't want the job in the first place and has never done anything remotely on this scale before. He's all over the place...when he remembers to turn up for work! So, who has to cover for him? Who has to put in the hours, teach him his craft, patch up his mistakes, deal with his tantrums and get the job done? Who? Like any big project, it's the little guys, the professionals, the men who've been doing this kind of thing all their lives - they're the ones that are actually going to have to make it happen.
