New York, 1984. Fifty-six-year-old Andy Warhol’s star is falling. Jean-Michel Basquiat is the new wonder-kid taking the art world by storm. When Basquiat agrees to collaborate with Warhol on a new exhibition, it soon becomes the talk of the city.

As everyone awaits the ‘greatest exhibition in the history of modern art', the two artists embark on a shared journey, both artistic and deeply personal, that re-draws both their worlds.

Paul Bettany (The Avengers, Wandavision) is the iconic Warhol and Jeremy Pope (Hollywood, Choir Boy, Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations) plays the magnetic Basquiat in the world premiere of Anthony McCarten’s thrilling new drama, directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah.

This show contains themes of racism, violence, death, abortion, grief, and body hatred. There are moments of nudity. There are references to drug use, guns and police brutality, as well as the use of strong, homophobic and racist language. There is also the use of loud music and cigarette smoke.

Approx. 2 hours (including an interval)

As announced, a feature film adaptation of Anthony McCarten’s play is underway, which means that we will not be offering live broadcast performances of The Collaboration. We look forward to keeping our audiences updated on the future life of this story, as we are passionate about ensuring it is accessible to the widest possible audience.
