Asking Rembrandt at The Old Red Lion Theatre

Asking Rembrandt by Steve Gooch at the Old Red Lion Theatre

Scealta Mora presents the World Premiere of Asking Rembrandt by acclaimed playwright Steve Gooch. This new play examines the working life of the famous artist, as well as when art and emotion overlaps.

Based around the few known facts of Rembrandt’s relationship with patron Jan Six, as well as mistress Hendrickje Stoffels, this new play looks at the perils of the commissioning process through the working life of this most formidable artist.

Told with irreverent, award-winning wit, Asking Rembrandt offers an intimate insight into the studio and personal life of one of history’s most innovatory figures.

Casting includes Liam McKenna as Rembrandt, John Gorick as Jan Six, Esme Patti-Ford as Henni and Loz Keystone as Titus.

Asking Rembrandt will be directed by Jonathan Kemp, whose numerous credits include the Offie-nominated Prostitutes Marry in May at Waterloo East and the national touring production of The Picture Of Dorian Gray, and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

Asking Rembrandt runs at the Old Red Lion Theatre from 23 June – 18 July 2015.
