Lee Hall's The Pitmen Painters to Return to West End in October

By London
Lee Hall's The Pitmen Painters will return to the West End, beginning performances at the Duchess Theatre on October 5 in anticipation of an official opening on October 11. Max Roberts has directed the production.

The play, which takes its inspiration from actual events from the 1930s, centers on a group of British coalminers who discover that they have untapped talents as artists. Casting will be announced in the near future.

Hall's other credits include the screenplay for Billy Elliot, and the book for the musical based on the film. His other plays include Spoonface Steinberg, Cooking with Elvis, and an adaptation of Herman Heijerman's The Good Hope.

The creative team will include scenic and costume designer Gary McCann, lighting designer Douglas Kuhrt and sound designer Martin Hodgson.
