Three Furies: scenes from the life of Francis Bacon
Director Jim Sharman and playwright Stephen Sewell in conversation
How do you bring the complex life and work of an artist to the stage? Renowned director Jim Sharman and acclaimed playwright Stephen Sewell discuss their play Three Furies, a visceral cabaret portraying Francis Bacon’s infamous and tragic relationship with George Dyer. The production at the 2005 Sydney Festival premiere season won a Helpmann Award for Best Direction and Best New Australian Work. Join Sharman and Sewell in a conversation about their theatrical portrait of Bacon, illustrated with excerpts of archival footage from the acclaimed production.
