MRS LOWRY & SON

MRS LOWRY & SON
Thursday 3 October 2019 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm

Vanessa Redgrave, Timothy Spall, Wendy Morgan

Balancing his passion for painting with the everyday life of a Salford rent collector, LS Lowry may be on the brink of success, with a letter from London and the promise of a gallery show… yet he lives with his bedridden mother, who is immune to the charms of his factory and street scenes, sapping his confidence. Former RSC artistic director Noble keeps the focus on his two masterful lead actors, who bring life to the complex mother-son relationship.

Followed by a recorded gallery talk from The Lowry Centre in Salford, where Timothy Spall discusses L.S. Lowry’s life and art with gallery curator Claire Stewart.
L.S. Lowry became internationally famous for his depictions of 20th century industrial life in the North West of England, and the legacy of his work remains a huge presence in the region, not least at The Lowry, a purpose-built art gallery in Salford Quays. Such was his eventual success that he was offered five honours over his lifetime, including a knighthood in 1968 – all of which he rejected. His work regularly sells for millions.
