One Fifteen statement:
It is with great regret that the dates for A Theatre For Dreamers – An evening of words and music with Polly Samson and David Gilmour have been rescheduled to June 2021.
All tickets will be valid for the new shows, which have been previewed via The Von Trapped Family broadcasts on Polly’s Facebook page, and any new purchases will receive a signed copy of the hardback version of the book by Polly Samson and a signed photo by Polly and David Gilmour. For details on refunds see pollysamson.com and davidgilmour.com. The Sunday Times #2 bestseller A Theatre For Dreamers by Polly Samson is out now and published by Bloomsbury.

Join Polly Samson and friends to launch her new novel A Theatre for Dreamers at an evening of words and music.

This special event will feature Polly Samson in conversation with journalist Rosie Boycott, readings, film and live music, including a new song Yes, I Have Ghosts written by David Gilmour and Polly Samson.

The audience will be transported to the Greek island of Hydra in 1960, and a world dancing on the edge of revolution, where a circle of poets, painters, writers and musicians live tangled lives. It’s a story of utopian dreams and innocence lost, of the troubled King and Queen of Bohemia, Charmian Clift and George Johnson, of a young poet named Leonard Cohen, and his Marianne; and of Erica Hart, an 18-year-old in search of answers.

Ticket price includes a signed first edition of A Theatre For Dreamers and an exclusive portrait of Polly Samson and David Gilmour taken on Hydra and signed by them both.
*The book and portrait will be available for collection from the venue, on the night of the event only

Suitable for age 16 and over (advisory)
