Pope Head: The Secret Life of Francis Bacon shows us the inner psyche of the boy, man and artist. The abuse suffered at the hands of his military, horse breeding father and his henchmen. Banished from the family home to London and Paris. We see Francis discover Picasso and his passion to paint. The complex relationships as he sets out to "See everything, meet everyone, **** everything that moves, and achieve greatness !" This he did with gusto.
"Roost brings Bacon back to dangerous life" Syke On Stage
"Here we witness the power of a talented character actor, with real words that convey real passion; where the complexities of a talented artist are held up for scrutiny. Roost delivers in spades and every line is like a bullet. There is nothing superfluous with the script. It is paired back and concise. And at every opportunity we are reminded of the artist’s brilliant wit, devastating sarcasm and towering intellect." Jon Adams Scenstr
