White Bear Theatre Presents
The Likeness
by Peter Billingham

Two characters lust for the power of politics and art. 


Who has the right to rule?  Is democracy a lie? Is total power in one leader the only way to get what we truly want and what is the cost? Can art capture power?

Mostar, a deposed dictator awaits his portrait to be painted by Lash, an artist and revolutionary.  Can she produce The Likeness? Two actors playing dangerous games - is everything up for grabs?


A darkly disturbing absurdist comedy, The Likeness was commissioned for an Italian theatre festival in Como and Milan, then won the 2016 British Scriptwriting Challenge.   Substantially revisited, this compelling drama is from Peter Billingham, the award winning author of Married Blitz & Gifted and directed by the award winning Brendan Murray. 

Don't miss it - you might just die laughing...
