A Theatre For Dreamers (rescheduled date)

An Evening of Words and Music featuring Polly Samson and David Gilmour

Wednesday 9 September 2020, 7.30pm

RNCM Concert Hall

Polly Samson and David Gilmour b&w

NEW DATE. This event was originally scheduled to take place on Monday 30 March. Original tickets are still valid. If ticket holders cannot attend the new date, please contact us.

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.

Suitable for age 16 and over (advisory)
