Summary Set in 1930s England and inspired by a true-life story, The Pitmen Painters is about a group of miners who hire an instructor to teach an art appreciation class for them, and as a result many of them eventually progress to becoming celebrated artists.
Age May be inappropriate for 12 and under. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Our Recommendation Lee Hall, the writer of Billy Elliot, has created another tale of Northern England miners, but this one is based on the surprisingly true story of a small group of miners known as the Ashington Group who turned out to be natural artists. The cast, made up largely of natives of that area, is wonderful, and seeing replications of the Ashington Group's paintings is a delight. The play starts out strongly as we watch these working class men making early discoveries about the appreciation and creation of art, but as it goes on Hall spends too much time having them pontificate on the subject in a way that becomes tedious. Ultimately it leaves one wanting to know more about the pitmen and less about the painters.
