Description

Umbrella Theatre Company brings its new production, based on the life and work of the painter Frederic William Burton, to the dlr LexIcon Studio on Thursday 30th November and Friday 1st December 2017 at 8pm.

Burton is the painter of Ireland's most popular painting 'The Meeting on the Turret Stairs'.

This innovative production has been commissioned by the National Gallery of Ireland as part of its organised events linked to its own exhibition on Burton.

The Meeting combines the talents of playwrights Michael Casey, Gerard Dalton and Celia de Fréine and is a full length dramatisation of Burton’s life and work.

A cast of eight actors will interweave Burton’s life story and bring important paintings and sketches to life to portray the interesting people he met during his lifetime.

Performances of previous productions by Umbrella Theatre Company in the National Gallery of Ireland in 2014, 2015 & 2016 received widespread acclaim.

Advance purchase of tickets for these evening performances at the dlr LexIcon is therefore highly recommended.

Tickets will also be on sale at the door on nights of performances - subject to availability.
