Eighteenth century London. The art world is on the brink of transformation, about to escape from the drawing rooms of the rich and into the hands of the lower classes. Compressing the events of ten tumultuous years into a single night, The Art of Success unwraps the debauched world of seminal artist William Hogarth.

A raucous riot which interrogates themes of national identity, sex, hedonism in the face of censorship, and the timeless tension between making art and making money.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Rosica Colin Limited
