Lovers of history, art, politics and the study of culture will be enthralled by this neglected 20th Century masterpiece, now so profoundly topical, about censorship of the world’s most innocent satirical device – the political cartoon.
Directed by Damien Ryan, Howard Barker’s No End of Blame is a sublimely playful, dangerous and pertinent political story. Set over 6 decades of the 20th Century across Europe, the play pits a passionate, provocative pair of artists, one a painter, the other a cartoonist, against the forces of censorship and insidious state control that corrupt and stifle the human right to freedom of thought and freedom of speech. This brutal and savagely funny play could not be more relevant to our modern world and its new brand of war, journalism and self-expression. A visual and aural feast for the senses.
