Description

“Every man must have his mystery”

Some of the masterpieces that secured Winslow Homer's reputation as the greatest American figurative artist of the 19th century were painted in Cullercoats. But what on earth was he doing there?

Tynemouth born Stephenson's play magnificently imagines how this quiet genius settled in a remote enclave of the North East in 1881 and stayed for the best part of two years.

No mere biography, Stephenson creates a living, breathing portrait of the artist. The arrival of such an exotic creature from Massachusetts creates an inevitable, often funny, clash of cultures with the local fishermen and women.

This is in part a tale of seduction, not only of individual hearts, but of a whole community.
