Beyond the Canvas: Return of the Prodigal Son


Steven Pacey played Michael in “The Return of the Prodigal Son” by Tim Jackson, one of a three-part Beyond the Canvas series on Radio 4 in late January. Rembrandt's painting, The Return Of The Prodigal Son, is the starting point for this contemporary drama reflecting the themes of the painting. Jackson's drama follows a British diplomat as he visits his dying father in St Petersburg, where the painting hangs. Through a dialogue with his Russian guide Natasha, Michael comes to an understanding about his own relationship with his father, and his father's relationship with the city of his birth.
