THE Oxford Playhouse stages an unusual theatrical experiment early next month, writes Lesley Potter.

Still Life: An Audience With Henrietta Moraes is a stage play about the life of an extraordinary woman of the Fifties who was the muse of both Bacon and Freud.

The difference is, the audience is invited to draw the writer and performer Sue MacLaine as her story of the Bohemian queen unravels on stage. Taking place at Modern Art Oxford, potential audience members are advised that no previous drawing experience is required, and all art materials are provided.

They are also advised that the production contains nudity, and has a 16-plus guideline.

Tickets for the performances on Thursday and Friday, February 7 and 8, are £12 (discounts £10) and available from the ticket office on 01865 305305 or from the website www. oxfordplayhouse.com
