Poverty and Muse

13 May to 14 May

This award-winning play by Karen Zelas about the life and art of Frances Hodgkins is presented  in commemoration of  the 70th anniversary of the artist's death. 

Hodgkins, who we find at the height of her career, is still living in poverty. Her life and relationships unfold against a background of World War II and depict the conflicts and statelessness of the expatriate artist,the passion and the sacrifice, obsession and self-doubt, ecstasy and despair.

Helen Moran plays Frances Hodgkins. Directed by Martin Howells and produced by One Man Banned productions.

Running time 1 hour.

Cash bar available at the evening performances.
