Artist Descending a Staircase archiveDonner, Beauchamp and Martello, three elderly avant-garde artists, have co-existed for over fifty years. The play opens with Beauchamp and Martello accusing each other of the murder of Donner. In a series of flashbacks, the bickering trio are contrasted with their young counterparts. The pivot is Sophie, loved by each of them in different ways. This is an ingeniously structured, poignant and witty play.
