BWW Review: HOGARTH'S PROGRESS, Rose Theatre Kingston Photo BWW Review: HOGARTH'S PROGRESS, Rose Theatre Kingston
by Debbie Gilpin - Sep 30, 2018

Over 30 years since The Art of Success was first performed, beginning in Stratford-upon-Avon and running in both New York and London (where it picked up an Olivier Award nomination), and Nick Dear's play has been revived alongside the world premiere of his new work The Taste of the Town. William Hogarth is the focal point of both plays, alongside wife Jane, fittingly set 30 years apart. They show a marked contrast between the up-and-coming, angry young artist and the disgruntled establishment figure - neither quite fitting in, instead blazing a trail for themselves. Together they form Hogarth's Progress, a curious but entertaining double bill of plays.
