Steve Dove

A vibrant colourist, Steve's paintings of the Yorkshire landscape encapsulate the Wolds with its undulating patchwork of fields in yellows, greens and browns, also the quaint East Coast fishing ports with boats in rich primary colours lining the harbour walls.  Steve has a passion for painting still life and figurative work.

"I work from present day observations and my paintings are bold, bright, colourful and slightly abstracted, but not to the point of obliterating the subject matter."

Steve has work in private collections in the UK, Europe, America, Hong Kong and South Africa

Frankenstein - Nt Live

This is the second of our two encore screenings of the National Theatre's Frankenstein (a new play by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley) with Jonny Lee Miller taking on the role of the Creature. .


Originally staged and broadcast last year, Frankenstein won rave reviews from the press and has subsequently won numerous awards, including all top UK theatre awards (Olivier, Evening Standard and Critic’s Choice awards). Academy Award and BAFTA winner Danny Boyle(127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) directs this visionary production with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller in the lead roles.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein's bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.
