Reformation is funny, gripping and challenging new speculative play inspired by the life and art of the German Renaissance artist Lucas Cranach. Berlin. Ava learns that the celebrity artist Cranach is visiting her city. A chance meeting in the market place leads to romance with an artist’s son. Ava gets the chance to model for Cranach’s new painting, ‘The Rape of Lucrece’. When the all-powerful Elector of Brandenburg sees the sketches of Ava, he wants the model. Is Cranach willing to sell the woman his son loves? Upsetting the powerful means obscurity or death. What’s a poor girl to do? Reformation is a play about those who don’t make the history books.
