12/11 The Pitmen Painters at Miners Alley

Miners Alley Playhouse

Auditions for the Regional Premier of

“The Pitmen Painters”

BY

Lee Hall

Inspired by the book by William Feaver

Directed by Rita Broderick

In 1934, a group of Ashington miners and a dental mechanic hired a professor from Newcastle University to teach an Art Appreciation evening class. Unable to understand each other, they embarked on one of the most unusual experiments in British art as the pitmen learned to become painters. Within a few years the most avant-garde artists became their friends, their work was taken for prestigious collections and they were celebrated throughout the British art world; but every day they worked, as before, down the mine.

“An inspiring, important new play. The Pitmen Painters asks-as Hall did in Billy Elliot-why the arts seem to belong to a privileged cabal… A play that’s both deliciously comic and grave.” Observer
