9 Peter­bor­ough Arts Cin­ema

John Clare Theatre, tonight In The Square, Chris­tian is the re­spected cu­ra­tor of a con­tem­po­rary art mu­seum, a di­vorced but de­voted fa­ther of two who drives an elec­tric car and sup­ports good causes. His next show is “The Square”, an in­stal­la­tion which in­vites passersby to al­tru­ism, re­mind­ing them of their role as re­spon­si­ble fel­low hu­man be­ings. But some­times, it is dif­fi­cult to live up to your own ideals.
