Mrs Lowry & Son at Trafalgar Studios 2

Mrs Lowry & Son at Trafalgar Studios 2 Mrs Lowry & Son is the World Premiere by Bafta-Nominated Martyn Hesford exploring the life and work of the Artist L. S. Lowry.

Mrs Lowry and Son is a new drama from BAFTA-nominated writer Martyn Hesford. "My paintings are not just pictures of streets, mills and factories. Every stroke of colour is made up of me.” "How self-indulgent, get yourself to a doctor." It is 1934. L.S. Lowry is a rent collector and living at home with his mother who has taken to her bed for the last 10 years demanding food, gossip and complete devotion. It is only at night, while his mother sleeps, that he can go to the attic and paint . Mrs Lowry ridicules her son’s paintings. This blistering, funny and poetic new play lays bare the oddities of life and the longing at the heart of a man who found great success in his later years, an overlooked genius ignored by the art establishment – a true outsider. Directed by Abbey Wright Set and Costumes Designed by Richard Kent Lighting Design by David Plater Sound and Composition by Alex Barnowski

Do check out the beautifully directed 'Mrs Lowry and Son' at The Trafalgar Studios. Quietly devastating. Dame Juniper Watson is glorious.

At the moment we are spoilt for choice when it comes to plays in London, but hidden away inside the smaller theatre at Trafalgar Studios is one of the most special shows I have seen for a while, Mrs Lowry and Son.
