Yo! Picasso!: Beside Picasso
From poverty-stricken youth in Barcelona to international success as leading players in the artistic avant garde Picasso and Sabartes lived through much together. But now is the time of reckoning...It is 1973. Picasso has just died. Sabartes is in some strange limbo - and Picasso joins him. However Sabartes is no longer the oppressed doormat he once was. He starts to take Picasso apart.
This verbally venomous, effervescent play is an often hilarious exploration of power, friendship, sex, money and the nature of genius. Picasso and Sabartes are like boxers in a ring, pitted in a ruthless contest to discover 'the truth'. They reminisce, argue and resurrect the triumphs, escapades and characters from their extraordinary lives. Gradually they edge closer to the ultimate truth, the ultimate quarrel, and the ultimate betrayal.
