The Dark Earth And The Light Sky – Mon 20th – Sat 25th May 2019

Written by Nick Dear

Directed by Anne Page

Deep in the Hampshire countryside Edward Thomas, disaffected husband, exhausted father and tormented writer, scrapes a living. In 1913 he meets American poet Robert Frost and everything changes. As their friendship blossoms Edward writes, emerging from his cocoon of self-doubt into one of the most influential poets of the 20th century. But he makes the drastic decision to enlist, confounding his friends and family. This beautifully written play provides a touching, often amusing, thought provoking and, ultimately, moving insight into the relationship of Edward with his father, wife Helen, and poet friends Robert Frost and Eleanor Farjeon.
