Recommend this event

A specially commissioned new play written by classicist Sue Blundell inspired by Auguste Rodin and his influential friendship group in London.

Rodin met Eve Fairfax, Max Beerbohm and others while sketching some of the Parthenon sculptures in the British Museum. With their help, he travels back in time to revisit his former setbacks and triumphs. The dinner given in his honour at London's Café Royal in 1902 remains a highlight. In his speech that night, he said: 'In my life I have had some good and bad moments. This is one of the best.'

Directed by Rob McIndoe, and performed by the Shipshape Theatre Company.
