The Cave Painter – March 10-15, 2015
The Cave Painter tells the story of Dianne, an aging bohemian artist who conjures up personal stories of love and tragedy. Everyone close to her has passed away, with the exception of her only son who has embraced a life of religious fundamentalism in which she has no place. Instead she finds solace in art amid the imperfect world around her.
Starring Jenny Munday, this co-production with Blue Munday Productions is a powerful one person show which explores the territories of love, loss, aging, art, creation, and religion. It’s about parenthood. It’s about growing up in the 1960s, about innocence and the loss of innocence. It’s funny and sad. It’s upsetting, powerful, and comforting.
“Don Hannah has written a brilliant one woman play, a monologue… A whole life was lived, not just in summary, but with telling specific details.” —Nancy Bauer, Telegraph-Journal, Saint John, NB
