Viewing Picasso by Terry d’Alfonso

‘Love is the greatest refreshment in life,’ said Picasso, the undisputed genius painter who bled his women for his art. Among them was his first wife Olga, a Ukrainian-Russian ballet dancer at the Ballets Russes whom he abandoned for the young Marie-Thérèse Walter.

But before long Walter too was cast aside for the fiery Dora Maar, a gifted artist, poet and photographer who intellectually challenged Picasso. But perhaps too much as, yes, you’ve guessed it, she too was replaced by a new leading lady: Fançoise Gilot. And on it went.

Should he be judged or forgiven? Terry d’Alfonso’s critically acclaimed play leaves you to decide.

Co-adapted for solo performance and directed by Guy Masterson, this Playground Theatre performance promises to be an ‘explosive, deeply passionate voyage of self-revelation’. With multi-award winner Peter Tate in the title role, we couldn’t be more excited.

But hurry! It’s only running for just over a week and tickets are selling fast. See you there.
