The Seven Acts of Mercy by Anders Lustgarten
Set Construction for Waverly Theatre NTU
The play is based off a painting of the same name by Caravaggio. The story takes place in two time periods: Naples, 1606 and Bootle, present day. In Naples Caravaggio works to complete his masterpiece in the Pio Monte Della Misericordia. In Bootle, Leon teaches his grandson Mickey about his love for art. The set, designed by Katie Stephenson, captures a snapshot of a key scene in the play.
