A new play by Craig Warner. Inspired by the libretto to Puccini's opera Tosca, but set under a more modern, violently oppressive regime - where men and women have fought to resist the domination of a malign government. Baron Scarpia's musings on the nature of power, and on his love for the opera singer, Tosca, give way to a cat-and-mouse game in which the stakes are all-or-nothing. But inspired to fight for her lover Cavaradossi, Tosca's arsenal holds weapons against which Scarpia has no defence.
