About the Event

 

Sat 1, Sun 2  The Waste Land by TS Eliot, The Ardhowen  1 pm (Sat)  2.30 pm (Sun)

£16/£12  Duration 50 minutes

The Waste Land is widely regarded as one of the most important poems of the 20th century.  Whilst it loosely

follows the legend of the Holy Grail and the Fisher King, it also alludes to a range of world literature and

culture,  evidence of Eliot’s great breadth of interests and knowledge.  To mark the 50th anniversary of the

death of T S Eliot, the festival presents a special reading of The Waste Land, curated  by Adrian Dunbar

and with a specially commissioned soundscape by composer Nick Roth matched to images that evoke the

the period,  the poem is broken down into four voices which capture the extraordinary verve and daring

of  Eliot’s great work.waste landhttp://www.ardhowentheatre.com
