A staged reading of Stolen
A new play by F. Lynne Bachleda at Rich Mix in London
PMJ Productions presented a staged reading of Stolen, a new play by F. Lynne Bachleda, directed by Prav MJ at Rich Mix, London livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Monday 1 April 2019 at 11:30 a.m. PDT (Los Angeles, UTC -7) / 2:30 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4) / 18:30 UTC / 7:30 p.m. BST (London, UTC +1).
Stolen is based on a true story. In 2012, Cornelius Gurlitt’s Munich apartment was raided by the German police force. They found and removed 1,400 pieces of Nazi art, including Picasso and Matisse worth a billion dollars. Who did the art belong to? His father, a ‘degenerate art’ collector for Hitler? Or was it stolen from Jews fleeing Germany during World War II?
Stolen looks at Cornelius’ last days, when this fragile recluse stands before the accusing world who demand answers. Can he save his ‘family’—his paintings that he has lived alone with for over 40 years? What happens when the paintings come alive again?
There will be an after show talkback with the writer F. Lynne Bachleda about the inspiration of her play and Ph.D researcher from the LSE Sarah Jewett about “degenerate art”
Prav MJ founded PMJ productions to support emerging writers and actors and to stage plays that create debate and change. Previous works include Faceless by Selina Fillinger, Sket by Maya Sondhi (Park Theatre) and The Lonely Soldier Monologues (LSM) by Helen Benedict.
These plays received public support via Kickstarter, and LSM also received Arts Council funding.
