A series of screenings and talks will explore the aesthetic world and connotations of those iconic, dashing images of rebellious men such as James Dean, Marlon Brando, Steve McQueen or Jean-Paul Belmondo in his New Wave films as well as their timelessness.

Post Show Q&A:
12 JAN 2016

Grey Gardens at Southwark Playhouse
7.30pm

Based on the iconic film, Grey Gardens tells the spectacular real life rise and fall of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis's aunt and cousin, Edith and Edie Bouvier Beale.

Starting in 1941 at an engagement party at Grey Gardens, the Bouvier's mansion in East Hampton, Long Island, this musical tracks the progression of the two women's lives from American aristocrats to reclusive social outcasts living in such squalid conditions, in a home overrun by cats, that the Health Department deemed the mansion 'unfit for human habitation'.

Grey Gardens stars multi Olivier Award winners Sheila Hancock and Jenna Russell.

After the performance of Grey Gardens at Southwark Playhouse there was an exclusive post show question and answer session. The Q&A which was arranged by Fashion & Cinema in collaboration with Milktwosugars, featured the show's costume designer Johnathan Lipman (Director of production for Angels Costumiers) AKO Mitchell (performer and award winning documentary filmmaker) and other special guests.
