The Pitmen Painters

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

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.

Lee Hallâs play is a humorous, deeply moving and timely look at art, class and politics.
