Description "Based on the notion of the famous Magritte painting of a pipe with its paradoxical caption 'Ceci N'est Pas Une Pipe' - the audience spends most of the 75 minutes of Begging the Question seated at small restaurant tables, watching and being part of a confusing and surprising array of those who beg, what they beg for and why they beg."
