Black&White Productions present
Harry’s Bar #10 – Portrait of The Artist
Written by Suzanne Hawkes
Come and join us for our 10th Anniversary Production of ‘Harry’s Bar’, with the same eclectic mix of drama, humour and music but with a brand new theme - and this year in a new location – upstairs in The Conservative Club, High Rd West, Felixstowe.
And for all you literary buffs - in spite of the title it’s not about James Joyce!
Our theme is a look at visual artists – especially those associated with Suffolk. So we have John Constable, famous for his Flatford Mill landscapes – unhappy in love and fending off the interference of his mother, while fighting it out for a spot at The Royal Academy with J. W. Turner – who has his own problems on the romantic front.
We have Sudbury based Maggi Hambling giving a talk on life, art and Francis Bacon, Theo Van Gogh looking for his brother (well Holland is only just across the water!) and there’s a couple of art forgers on the loose – including one associated with Dedham.
And it all takes place in Beryl Cook’s favourite pub ‘The Dolphin’ (ex landlady of The White Horse at Stoke by Nayland ) , where the ‘Bosom Pals’ are fond of doing a few musical turns of their own while waiting for the shy and retiring artist herself to turn up and paint another of her famous portraits of them.
It’s going to be a colourful evening!
