Description

Picasso's Women, by Brian McAvera, is a unique look at the great painter’s early life through the voices of his wives, mistresses and muses. These three honest and humorous monologues were originally produced at the National Theatre and on BBC Radio 3. The unique stories of French model Fernande, Russian ballerina Olga and 17-year-old mistress Marie-Thérèse give an insight into life with Picasso and the influence the women had on his art. Set in a contemporary art space this modern setting points a spotlight on these women through the lens of 21st-century values.
