The Pitmen Painters
Information for The Pitmen Painters at New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-under-Lyme (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. 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. Examining the lives of a group of ordinary men that do extraordinary things, The Pitmen Painters is a humorous, deeply moving and timely look at art, class and politics.
Author Lee Hall. Book by William Feaver. Producer New Vic. Director Gwenda Hughes.
