Today I booked for a RADA London play on 20 October night, it’s called “The Bright and Bold Design“, here the synopsys:
Written by Peter Whelan – Directed by Robert Hastie – Designed by Janet Bird
GBS Theatre, RADA Malet Street –Wed 14 Oct – Sat 24 Oct, 7:15pm | Matinee Sat 17 Oct, 2:15pm
I’m a pottery painter, too, so I’m intrigued by this story I never heard of so far. I think it’s the first time ever I heard about a play on a pottery painter!
I’m too curious to miss it. Now I’m waiting for the cast list and something more on the kind of performance.
I searched some information about Clarice Cliff and Peter Whelan, so below there are some interesting links on them:
- The Original Clarice Cliff Website claricecliff.com,
- The Clarice Cliff Website claricecliff.co.uk both sites with amazing galleries of her works,
- Clarice Cliff style designs By Chris Rogers rogerschris51.wordpress.com his friend met her in 1961 all his beautiful work is inspired by Clarice Cliff,
- Peter Whelan obituary theguardian.com, unfortunately the playwright died last year aged 82
So, once more, Theatre, TV Series and Cinema make me find out always new, fascinating people who lived and died and in the between created wonderful Art.
Other incoming works like this, dedicated to bright and bold women, are coming.
A play called I Loved Lucy

I will attend to the special presentation on the 20 October afternoon. So that will be a very charming day in the company of two wonderful ladies!
And a book on the Edith Head, the marvellous fashion designer who dressed such people as Audrey Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich, is already available: <<THE NAKED TRUTH. A love letter to the talents of unique designer EDITH HEAD.>> by U.S. Costume Designer Jean-Pierre Dorléac!
I remember seeing a long article with pictures about her collaboration with the other great stylist Adrian on the Italian magazine Ciak in the ’90s. My interest on them began then.
All great women but, first af all, artists in a men’s world!
