1606 and Europe is at war over God. Venice’s four strongest men are charged with transporting a holy painting across the Alps to Prague. On their way, they are set upon by Protestant zealots—their escape is attributed to a miracle. Through this mystery Sean Dixon challenges the role of faith at the dawn of the Age of Reason.

Dixon’s plays have been produced all over Canada, the U.S., Australia and England. They include Lost Heir, The Notorious Right Robert and His Robber Bride, France or, The Niqab among others.
