THE FLESH ADDICT

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Gavin Kostick 

  • Synopsis

    The Flesh Addict tells the story of the lives and loves of Janey Morris, William Morris, Lizzie Siddal and the greatest of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The play delves into a gothic 19th-century world of obsession, madness, delirium and death, and follows the destructive journey that an artist must undertake to produce even one good work.
