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.
