Peppermint Muse presents The Colours of Kenny Roach

Sat 24th September 2016 7:30PM
Upstairs at the Western, Leicester, LE3 0GA

The Colours of Kenny Roach is a warm, funny and deeply moving drama about creativity, the nature of the artist and the self-destructive impulse of addiction. Kenny is a Glaswegian artist and lecturer; talented, charismatic, charming. But even his wife cannot save him from the demons that turn his colourful world to black. Projection, music and true-life accounts combine in an honest, humorous and heart-breaking portrait of one man’s struggle with his art and his battle with addiction as he fights for his life.

 “Rich in satirical wit, this is a crisply written, cool and classy play; performed with a natural, engaging ease it oozes with a Pinteresque sense of sexual tension and dramatic intrigue.”

★★★★★ Edinburgh Guide

“This is compelling, thoughtful, character-driven drama that packs an emotional punch.”

★★★★ Three Weeks

“The chemistry between the two actors is brilliant; we always believe the underlying pain that both characters express and this leads to a truly heartfelt ending.”

★★★★ Broadway Baby
