Woven Theatre Presents : Gainsborough and the Modern Woman

on Friday, 20th May 2022
Venue: The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth IP19 8BY link
A play by Peppy Barlow and Sally Wilden. In 1760 Gainsborough painted a portrait of Ann Ford, which took his world by storm. Prepared to break the rules about how a woman should be portrayed, the painting was a cause of outrage but put a seal on Gainsborough’s growing reputation.
The play is about the making of this portrait and the relationship between painter and subject, a very personal and exploratory process which tells us a great deal about their characters, their place in history and the creation of a masterpiece.
The story has all kinds of local connections – notably with Gainsborough’s birthplace in Sudbury where his family worked in cloth. For this production two of Sudbury’s present day silk weavers, Stephen Walters and Humphries Weaving, are having the silk for Ann’s dress specially woven to match the design in the portrait – an extraordinary act of generosity which will result in a dress that can be used for exhibition purposes in the future.
Ticket Details: Standard ticket £12.00 / Under 25 years £10.00
