The Pitmen Painters archiveIn 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.
Performers Joe Caffrey (Harry Wilson), Louis Hilyer (Robert Lyon), Riley Jones (Ben Nicholson/Young Lad), Nicholas Lumley (George Brown), Donald McBride (Jimmy Floyd), Philip Correia (Oliver Kilbourn), Suzy Cooper (Helen Sutherland), Catherine Dryden (Susan Parks).
Author Lee Hall. Book by William Feaver. Producer Bill Kenwright. Director Max Roberts. Design Gary McCann. Lighting Douglas Kuhrt. Costume Gary McCann. Sound Martin Hodgson.
