About “The Pitmen Painters”
Heralded in London and on Broadway, this new play by the Tony Award-winning writer of Billy Elliot, Lee Hall, is based on a triumphant true story. A group of miners in Northern England taking an art appreciation class start experimenting with painting and soon build an astonishing body of work that makes them the unlikeliest of art world sensations. An arresting and hilarious salute to the power of individual expression and the collective spirit, The Pitmen Painters is a deeply moving and timely look at art, class and politics.
The program will feature readings of selected scenes followed by a moderated conversation with the performers and the audience.
