Part of Atelier at SBMA: Where art meets the unexpected


Experience what The New York Times calls “a rich drama created with rigorous, poetic economy ” which “belongs to that wonderful genre of thoughtful plays that could be discussed for hours without exhausting its ideas.”


Acclaimed British playwright and actor, Tim Crouch brings ENGLAND to SBMA’s Davidson Gallery. This interactive performance is tailored to works in the Museum’s exhibition Selected Abstraction, 1940s – 90s. A discussion with the director and actors follows the performance.


The same performance occurs both nights. Audience is limited to 60 guests each night.


Tickets include British gastro pub inspired hors d’oeuvres, Brander wines, and the signature cocktail, “The Batsman”, an RND vodka-based infusion with a post-colonial twist.
