Polly Samson and David Gilmour are set to appear on stage together for an evening of words and music…
A Theatre For Dreamers, a Polly Samson production, is set to travel from Manchester to Birmingham and London. Each of these events will feature Samson in conversation with journalist Rosie Boycott, readings, film and live music, including a new song Yes, I Have Ghosts, written by Gilmour and 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.
Tickets include 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.
