Poverty and Muse by Karen Zelas
This award-winning play by Karen Zelas about the life and art of Frances Hodgkins is
presented to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the artist's death.
Hodgkins, who we find at the height of her career, is still living in poverty. Her life and
relationships unfold against a background of World War II and depict the conflicts and
statelessness of the expatriate artist - the passion and the sacrifice, obsession and
self-doubt, ecstasy and despair.
Helen Moran plays Frances Hodgkins, supported by David Allen, Julia Guthrey, Julian
Anderson, Charles Grubb, Janette Dovey and Franc Bol. Directed by Martin Howells and
produced by One Man Banned productions.
