Maar Dora Title

maar, dora

Following a Sold Out debut at FreshFest, this "reavealing" (PeopleOfTheatre) new play by Nadia Jackson returns to the Old Red Lion for one week only. 


Dora Maar (1907-1997) was a prolific photographer and artist, developing her career in fashion photography, before hailing as one of the first women in the surrealist movement. She used her creations as a social commentary on beauty, gender and war.


However in today’s conversations, her name only appears after a man’s: the infamous Pablo Picasso. He needs no introduction (and I am not inclined to give one). History holds Dora’s romantic involvement with him as the only memorable thing about her, but in this play, Dora is here to tell you differently. Delving into the deepest depths of her career, and his cruelty, battling to escape the association with Picasso that looms over her, whilst bringing you the honest truth about this ‘love story’.
