A special staged recital by Glyn Maxwell
Presented by Poetry London
Award-winning poet playwright, Glyn Maxwell, leads an extraordinary cast of characters in this premiere staging of his celebrated novel, Drinks With Dead Poets.
It’s the autumn term: tutoring students in poetry in a mysterious village, Glyn’s world is transformed by the arrival of Keats in a country lane; Emily Dickinson and other poets soon follow on their way to give readings in the humble village hall. And everything they say – in class, on stage, at the Cross Keys pub – comes verbatim from their diaries, essays, or letters.
Tickets for this special fundraiser for Poetry London are £25/£20, £15 concessions.
Arts Council England will match-fund all proceeds raised by this event.
