The Blue Hour of Natalie Barney

by Frances Bingham

Directed by Kenneth Hoyt
with Amanda Boxer

“They say it takes two to tango – in my case it’s probably three, or more…”

In the blue hour of twilight, one trailblazing artist paints a remarkable picture: of her life, her liaisons and her passionate self-belief.

Natalie Barney was an unstoppable force in modernism and the early gay rights movement. Her lovers were the most beautiful women of the era; her friends were the most celebrated artists of twentieth century culture.

Step into her Paris salon – like Marcel Proust, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot and Greta Garbo before you – to hear her tale in person, and to witness her wild and visionary creed up close.

Amanda Boxer (Mosquitoes, National Theatre; Medea, Almeida Theatre) plays Natalie Barney in the world premiere of this revealing new play by Frances Bingham, directed by Kenneth Hoyt.
