Event Description

I Am John Clare

One night with a poet in a madhouse

A Solo Performance Drama followed by Q & A

After years of being addicted to poetical prosing John Clare, known as the peasant poet, found himself committed to Northamptonshire General Lunatic Asylum in the closing weeks of 1841.

We join him on the night of the 8th March 1860, as the Poet goes on a quest in search of his own identity, creativity and to try and understand what is insanity and why they call him mad.

Written by Stephen Loveless, with Robin Hillman as the poet you are taken into the life of Clare. The performance will be followed by a general Q & A session.

Refreshments will be available at the licensed bar.

Tickets are £5, to reserve your ticket please contact the John Clare Cottage – 01733 253330.
