The Woman Who Amuses Herself
by Victor Lodato
produced by The Jack Studio Theatre
A worker at the Louvre walks out of the museum with one of its most famous paintings hidden under his coat.
The Mona Lisa has always captivated the world. But for Vincenzo Peruggia the painting holds a special power, one that compels him to steal it and return it to Italy. But before he returns it, he lives in his Paris apartment under the watchful smile of La Gioconda for over two years.
Based on an incredible true story, The Woman Who Amuses Herself takes us beyond the smile in a witty and poignant exploration of the mysteries and magnetism of art.
This UK premiere is produced by the same team behind the Offie-nominated five-star productions of Kes, Lifeboat, Kindred Spirits and The Invisible Man.

It’s a beautiful piece of theatre. Subtle, engaging and deeply touching…This is the Jack team doing what they do best and once again producing a diamond. This is a real treat. Heartfelt and elegant, it is yet further proof that the Brockley Jack is one of the best theatres in London. ★★★★★ Spy in the Stalls on Kes
this production was absolutely spot on from start to finish… at the end of seventy minutes my first thought was that I had seen a great show. ★★★★★ London Theatre1 on Kes
a moving tale of friendship and endurance that is both inspiring and stirring. One more impeccable in-house production for the close-knit team of the Jack Studio Theatre. ★★★★★ Everything Theatre on Lifeboat
under the direction of the consistently brilliant Kate Bannister, it makes for an enthralling 70 minutes. The Brockley Jack has a well-deserved reputation for its excellent in-house productions. Lifeboat is no exception… undoubtedly another triumph for the Brockley Jack team. Go and see it while you can. Theatre Things
