GIRL WITH A PEARL EARING will be the West End Premiere of the stage adaptation of Tracy Chevalier’s best selling novel, later an acclaimed film.
Johannes Vermeer (Adrian Dunbar – Hear My Song, The Crying Game, My Left Foot) is the greatest painter of his time. When he hires a young girl, Griet (Kimberley Nixon – Sophy in BBC’s Cranford) to help in his house, it is not long before she becomes more than a servant: she starts to help him in his studio, learning the art of painting by watching the master. And then, secretly, Vermeer begins to paint her and Griet becomes model and muse for his greatest masterpiece – GIRL WITH A PEARL EARING.
Olivier Award-winning actress Sara Kestelman also stars: one of our most accomplished stage actresses whose work includes seasons at both the National Theatre and RSC.
