FEATURING JIM FLETCHER AND BIRGIT HUPPUCH

Following its sold-out premiere in February at Manhattan's Abrons Art Center, we are pleased to present a theatrical reading of Pollock, featuring the original actors, Jim Fletcher and Birgit Huppuch. French playwright Fabrice Melquiot's drama, translated into English by Kenneth Casler and Miriam Heard, and directed by Paul Desvaux, illuminates the profound connection between the brilliant madness of Jackson Pollock and his marriage to artist Lee Krasner, exploring the charged space between his genius and her spirit, his inhibitions and her frustrations. In her New York Times review, Laura Collins-Hughes wrote, "[T]he production is tactile, kinetic, carnal, but its world is interior, dark and seductive." It is our honor to shine a spotlight on these two important artists, both of whom spent time in the Hawthorne Barn.


This performance is made possible through the support of The Cultural Services of the French Embassy, which promotes the best of French arts, literature, cinema, digital innovation, language, and higher education across the U.S.
