The Pitmen Painters
  • Play
  • Inspired by a book by William Feaver, co-produced by Live Theatre, Newcastle and the National Theatre.

    "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. Within a few years the most avant-garde artists became their friends and their work was acquired by prestigious collections; but every day they worked, as before, down the mine."

    "Lee Hall's new play is a humorous, deeply moving and timely look at art, class and politics."
