About: The Painter

Turner, the English romantic landscape artist and 'painter of light', was a man obsessed. Intensley prolific he was heavily reliant on his father, deeply affected by his mother's rejections and isolated from the usual breed of artists.

"English painting is dead. Dealers making fortunes out of sentimental dross. Dogs. Cherubs."

Rebecca Lenkiewicz’s Her Naked Skin was at the National Theatre in 2008. Her first play, Soho – a Tale of Table Dancers opened Arcola Theatre in 2001. Other Arcola productions include adaptations of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People and Ghosts. The Night Season, which opened at the National Theatre’s Cottesloe in 2004, received the Critics’ Circle’s Most Promising Playwright Award and was nominated for the Charles Wintour Evening Standard Award and the Susan Smith Blackburn Award. Other plays include Shoreditch Madonna (Soho Theatre), Faeries (ROH Linbury Theatre and Theatre Royal Bath) and The Soldier’s Tale (Old Vic).
