Pope Head: The Secret Life of Francis Bacon
Written & performed by Garry Roost
Directed by Paul Garnault
Tickets: £13.00 / Concessions: £10.00
Pope Head: The Secret Life of Francis is a dark comedic drama exploring the
life, art,sexuality, psyche and philosophies of the great artist, Francis Bacon.
Caught wearing his mother’s stockings and banished from the family home,
we follow the struggle of the young artist who eventually finds that success
goes hand-in-hand with tragedy when you are determined to live life to the full.
A powerful solo show that found International success after the east coast
tour of Australia in February/March 2015 to critical acclaim and invited to
Summerhall Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015. The Francis Bacon Estate has
endorsed the play with high praise. Clare Shenstone, a close confidant
of Bacon, found the portrayal as a “Startling…brilliant performance.”
Pope Head played the opening night of the MoMA Dubrovnik Francis Bacon
Exhibition in December 2016. The first of its kind in Croatia. Bacon famously
proclaimed:“Champagne for my real friends. Real pain for my sham friends”.
