A fascinating insight into the wives and lovers of Pablo Picasso will emerge from the canvas this August as eight women share stories about their lives with the great artist.

Written by Brian McAvera and presented by Blak Yak Theatre at Chrissie Parrott Arts, Picasso's Women is a collection of eight honest, brutal, erotic and humorous monologues that pull no punches.

The 2000 play allows the women to give their point of view and uncover their buried histories while relating their lives to Picasso's art. With nine actresses playing the different wives, lovers and muses, revealing how they were used and abused, each monologue also has its own director (two actresses play the same character in one monologue).
