"...it's the stories behind the images, whether real or imagined, that fascinate us."

A Thousand Words
Cast: 2M, 4W
The art world is ecstatic when a box of stunning black and white photos is discovered amongst some long-lost possessions of Ernest Hemingway. A curator from the Metropolitan Museum of Art lays claim to them, but so does a woman who might be the granddaughter of the photographer, Walker Evans. This new play explores the meaning of authenticity and the relationship between art and marketing. Whether the medium is vintage photographs or antique quilts, it asks the question, what are they really worth? And what's more intriguing, the art? Or the story behind it?
