For the last two years of his life, Roger Hilton took permanently to his bed, in his cliff top cottage on the coastline of Botallack, Cornwall. Here he continued to work, painting over the side of his bed on sheets of paper laid on the floor. A small downstairs room became his bedroom, living space and studio, where Roger would work through the night with only his thoughts, his imaginings and a temperamental radio for company.
Botallack O'Clock is a funny, moving and thought–provoking journey into the creative mind of one of the most unique voices in post–war British art.
Botallack O'Clock received rave reviews during its Edinburgh Fringe Festival run and consequently transferred to Off-Broadway for the Brits Off-Broadway Festival at 59e59 Theater
