The Dominion Post Season of
The Pitmen Painters
Written by: Lee Hall, Inspired by a book by William Feaver
Directed by: Ross Jolly
Circa One
04 October − 08 November

From Tony award-winning writer Lee Hall, best known for Billy Elliot, comes this amazing true story of the Ashington group of British miners who in 1934 hired a professor to teach an art appreciation evening class. Rapidly abandoning theory in favour of practice, the pitmen began to paint – prolifically, and unexpectedly became art-world sensations!

A funny, deeply moving and highly entertaining salute to the lives of a group of ordinary men who do extraordinary things, The Pitmen Painters takes you on an unforgettable journey from the depths of the mine to the heights of fame.

Hot on the heels of his Billy Elliot success Lee Hall’s Pitmen Painters has wowed huge audiences overseas and will be extremely popular.

“A wonderful piece of theatre: comic, sad and stirring in the same breath” - Financial Times
