See The Pitmen Painters at the Duchess Theatre
Plus dinner at the River Restaurant at the Savoy for £68.75
Monday 03 October 2011
Enjoy a pre-theatre meal at the revived River Restaurant at The Savoy with fine views over the River Thames followed by an evening at the Duchess Theatre for The Pitmen Painters.
Written by Lee Hall, creator of the worldwide sensation Billy Elliot, The Pitmen Painters has received huge critical acclaim and won the Evening Standard award for Best New Play.
In 1934, a group of Ashington miners hired a professor to teach an art appreciation evening class. Rapidly abandoning theory in favour of practice, the pitmen began to paint – prolifically. Within a few years avant-garde artists became their friends and their work was acquired by prestigious collectors; but every day they continued to work, as before, down the mine. The Pitmen Painters is highly amusing, deeply moving and always entertaining as it examines the lives of a group of ordinary men who do extraordinary things.
The play runs from 5 October 2011 to 21 January 2012 at the Duchess Theatre, Catherine Street, London WC2.
