at Old Red Lion Theatre, England – London

Henry Filloux-Bennett & Stephen Makin, The Cherub Company, Loaded Hog Productions and Nick Rogers present

Tom Stoppard’s Artist Descending A Staircase 1972. Martello, Beauchamp and Donner – three contemporary artists who have lived and worked together for 60 years. But this afternoon Donner has been found dead at the bottom of the stairs. Was it professional jealously that led to his demise, or a love triangle that spanned six decades? Six actors play the three artists as the search for artistic truth and criminal motive carries us from 1972 to 1914 and back again. Tom Stoppard is one of the most accomplished and acclaimed playwrights working today. His other plays include Rock ‘n’ Roll, Arcadia, The Real Inspector Hound, The Real Thing and Rozencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead. Cast includes: Jeremy Child (Seperate Lies, Wimbledon, Balmoral), Olivia Darnley (Hayfever – West End, Midsummer Nights Dream – Regent’s Park), Ryan Gage (Hamlet – BBC and RSC, Loves Labour Lost and Midsummer Nights Dream – both RSC), Max Irons (Wallenstein – Chichester, making his London debut), Edward Petherbridge (who created the role of Guildenstern in Stoppard’s Rozencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead), Alex Robertson (Orestes – Shared Experience), David Weston (King Lear – RSC world tour).
