Londoners have a rare chance to see a play written by Pablo Picasso in 1941. Desire Caught by the Tail—produced by LUXE—will be staged at the Nunnery Gallery in East London. Written in Nazi-occupied Paris, the Surrealist play is absurd and humorous, yet reflective of the dismal time in which it was created. The play was most recently performed at the Guggenheim in New York in 2012. A 1984 staging at the museum featured Louise Bourgeois and David Hockney.
