The Impressionists

The Impressionists
Drama - 6m, 2w - various locations

synopsis

Fighting the system and at times each other, a few stout individuals broke all the rules and changed forever how modern man would look at art. From the rigid conformity of the Paris Salon to the exhilaration and freedom of their first independent show, the story of these artists is one filled with human drama. Great loss and remarkable triumph all play a part in the birth of what would become known as Impressionism.

reviews

"Damned entertaining theatre."

"McKeever's . . . triumph is transforming icons of art appreciation class into flawed human beings awash in dreams and failures."
