    Hogarth's Progress

    Set in an imagined version of eighteenth century London, Hogarth’s Progress is a riotous double bill of plays following one of Britain’s most celebrated artists on two spectacularly wild days and nights – one at the beginning of his career and one at the end.

    The plays explore the extraordinary life of William Hogarth and the commercialisation of art in a time that saw British culture spring from the drawing rooms of the wealthy into ordinary houses across the country. Filled with political satire, boisterous romps and sleazy characters, Hogarth’s Progress promises to be an extraordinary theatrical event not to be missed.
     
    The double bill begins with the first major revival of The Art of Success, which was first performed by the RSC in 1986 before transferring to the Barbican and New York. Compressing the artist’s ascent to fame into a single, action-filled night, Dear follows a larger-than-life Hogarth as he mingles with famous playwrights and artists, royalty and prostitutes, prime ministers and murderesses creating an exceedingly imaginative, thoroughly scurrilous, but nonetheless highly entertaining portrait of a world on the brink of transformation. The second play, The Taste of the Town, catches up with Hogarth 30 years later, finding him now hugely successful, yet still at odds with the world and with himself. Old and tired he may be, but there’s always time for one more fight.

    Communicate

    “I should have mentioned it before, my Mum, she, last year, she passed”.

    James is suffocated by his past. Based on true events, this is one couple’s journey through bereavement, love, pregnancy, superheroes and enforced pen maintenance. It’s a story about the importance of talking, opening up and grieving at the right time and about not letting your past determine your future. This intimate and gripping account of life and death has been developed in association with Cruse Bereavement Care.

    Communicate is an exploration of the effects of grief on individuals and on relationships. The play is autobiographical; the writer lost both his parents whilst he was in his twenties, shut down, did not communicate and, a few years later, was diagnosed with PTSD. The central aims of the play are to address and raise awareness of the need to grieve, to talk, to listen and to have hope. The play seeks to open up a dialogue about addressing your feelings at the right time and in the right way to try to limit the long-term impact on your mental and physical health as far as it is possible to do so.

    “Everyone should see this play” – Area Manager, Cruse Bereavement Care

    “A really delicate piece of writing” – Richard Cameron, Playwright

    “Explores its themes poignantly with humour too” – Audience Member
