London Performances of Picasso's Women alongside Specially Curated Artwork wonderful received by audiences

After nearly two years in the making it is hard to believe that we have achieved so much. The London performances of ‘Picasso’s Women’ were further bought to life by being staged at Gallery Different, London, surrounded by beautifully curated artwork by some superbly talented female artists. We thank Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf and Karina Philips for bringing together such a wonderful collaboration of work. The reviews speak for themselves which given the short run of just 5 public performances is testament to the work input from all the team. We thank all those who have helped make this project happen.

Picasso’s Women returns from a hugely successful two week run at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018

Picasso's Women appeared at The Fruitmarket Gallery for the final two weeks of The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018 thanks to your support.

A tall order given that it was the first major Fringe Production performed at the gallery, Flying Elephant Productions first ever venture at the Festival and the last two weeks is notorious for ticket sales and reviewers slowing up after the sheer exhaustion of the first two weeks!

But we ‘Made the Impossible Possible’!

Thank you, Dame Judi Dench!

Picasso's Women are honoured to have Dame Judi Dench as a patron of our theatre production. She joins our other fantastic line up of patrons who each bring unique and vital support to the show. Tickets are selling fast so be sure to book yours by clicking on the booking links above.
