The Blue Hour of Natalie Barney
7th – 11th November 2017
In the blue hour of twilight, one trailblazing artist paints a remarkable picture: of her life, her liaisons and her passionate self-belief.
Natalie Barney was an unstoppable force in modernism and the early gay rights movement. Her lovers were the most beautiful women of the era; her friends were the most celebrated artists of twentieth century culture.
Step into her Paris salon – like Marcel Proust, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot and Greta Garbo before you – to hear her tale in person, and to witness her wild and visionary creed up close.
Amanda Boxer (Mosquitoes, National Theatre; Medea, Almeida Theatre) plays Natalie Barney in the world premiere of this revealing new play by Frances Bingham, directed by Kenneth Hoyt.
