Picasso at the Lapin Agile

October 29 - November 2

By Steve Martin
Directed by Natalie Roe

Paris. 1904. Wine o’clock.

On a not-so ordinary evening at the Lapin Agile, Montmartre’s iconic cabaret bar favoured by struggling artists, anarchists and intellectuals alike, two soon-to-be legends find themselves sitting next to each other. It turns out Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein, with egos as big as their intellects, have a lot to talk about. As the streets outside grow darker, the cafe is lit up with dizzying debate about the promise of the 20th century. But events take a surreal turn when a certain blue suede shoe-wearing singer from the future shows up…

American actor, writer and comedian, Steve Martin, plays fast and loose with history in this hilarious absurdist comedy.

This amateur production of “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk
