A solo show of the life, the philosophy and inner most truth of the man from his early life, beaten by his Fatherís henchmen, then sent to Berlin, banished from the family home after he was caught wearing his Motherís stockings. We follow the struggle of the young artist who eventually finds that success and tragedy go hand in hand. We witness the determination of Bacon to ďÖlive life to the fullÖĒ.
"I think of life as meaningless, yet it excites me. I Think each day something marvelous is about to happen."

Starring Garry Roost

"Think Michael Sheen, not Rory Bremner...Brilliantly crafted!"
