Heralded in London’s West End and on Broadway, this new play by the Tony Award-winning writer of Billy Elliot is based on a triumphant true story. In 1934, a group of miners in Northern England take an art appreciation class and begin experimenting with painting. They soon build an astonishing body of work that makes them the unlikeliest of art-world sensations. An arresting and hilarious salute to the power of individual expression and the collective spirit, The Pitmen Painters is richly funny, deeply moving and continuously entertaining as it examines the lives of a group of ordinary men who do extraordinary things. A heart-breakingly funny, inspirational story that takes you on an unforgettable journey from the depths of the mine to the heights of fame.
