1st Night Photos: Arcola Reopens with Painter

By • West End
The Arcola Theatre in Dalston reopened on Friday (14 January 2011) at its new location on Ashwin Street with the world premiere of Rebecca Lenkiewicz's The Painter, a play about the life of English romantic landscape painter and watercolourist JMW Turner.

The play is a fitting choice; the theatre's new Colourworks home, which it is moving to after ten years on Arcola Street, was the former home of Reeves whose colour blocks were made famous by artists such as Turner and Constable.
