A new tragic comedy by Jack Stacey (The Play That Goes Wrong, West End), directed by Zachary Hart (Julius Caesar, The Bridge).
Set in a dystopian future, 100 Paintings tells the story of a young artist and his mother struggling to survive in the crumbling Savoy Hotel.
“How am I supposed to be a professional artist with my mother barging in offering hot beverages and food every five minutes?”
Battling mountains of unpaid hotel bills, the young artist has three days to produce one-hundred original paintings and deliver them to the new hotel manager or he and his mother face being turned out onto the street.
With hilarious distractions coming in full force, he struggles to keep on course to meet the deadline, but help often comes from the most unexpected of places…
Direct from a ★★★★ sold-out run, 100 Paintings comes to the Hope Theatre for a limited three-weeks.
“A stellar debut… A series of hilarious tirades hides a deeper exploration of artistry.”
“Outstanding direction… Stacey’s new play is nothing short of magnetic.”
- Broadway World, ★★★★
“Very funny… Like Tom Stoppard… Unconventional, unpredictable, entertaining throughout.”
- Breaking the Fourth Wall, on The Way Out
