Inspired by Georges Seurat's painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Sondheim’s classic follows George as he strives to finish his masterpiece while his neglected lover Dot ponders her decision for life over love. George is unaware of the impact of his choices and the legacy he will have on generations to come. Learning from the past, his strikingly similar great-grandson comes to realise the two worthwhile things in life really are children and art.
