Fresh from artistic triumph in Glasgow, two painters swagger down to war-torn London's Bohemia to take the art world by storm. After forcing galleries and critics to take notice of their brilliant post-modernist paintings, they briefly become revered as the Gilbert and George of London's art establishment. However, these two Roberts-- partners and lovers-- are also outrageous and flamboyant hedonists who are eventually shunned by the Capital's chattering classes; and once out of control, there is only one way to go.
John Byrne idolised these two brilliant painters in his own Glasgow art school days and has written a fast moving play crackling with fine art and foul profanities. First performed at the Royal Court Theatre in 1992 with a cast of six, Byrne has created a new two-handed version for the Tron’s Changing House.
