Today We’re Reading

February 5, 2010 Leave a comment

Today in our playreading group we read the wonderful play “The Pitmen Painters” by Lee Hall.  The picture above is a painting by Oliver Kilbourn who was one of the characters in the play and who was also one of the miners from Ashington who became known as the Pitmen Painters in the 1930s and 1940s.

Here are some things that the group felt about the play:

  • They really enjoyed the truthful and generous interpretations of all the different characters.
  • They like the themes that the play investigated around art and culture and the part that it plays in society.
  • They really admired the way that the play felt very accessible and easy to read but that it still investigated very complex themes and ideas.

Our playreading group takes place on the first Friday of each month and is for anyone aged 18 and upwards, who is interested in reading plays and sharing their responses and ideas with other people. For more information on this group please contact the Box Office on 0161 236 7110. The next session takes place on Friday 5th March and we will be reading “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” by Tennessee Williams.
