Home Burial

"One thing I care about is taking poetry as the first form of understanding. If poetry isn't understanding all, the whole world, then it isn't worth anything"  - Robert Frost (1874 - 1963)

Home Burial is a theatrical adaptation of the poems Home Burial (1914) and The Witch of Coös (1922) by the North American poet Robert Frost.

Using as a starting point Frost's saying that "giving anything a form gives you confidence in the universe", the play aims to pick up the pieces left shattered after a year of pandemic by examining the themes of guilt, love and the supernatural. In The Witch of Coös a woman recalls the day when a skeleton escaped from the cellar and found his way to the attic. In Home Burial a couple deals with the impact of grief and the challenges of communication.

The work is the result of a collaboration between an international ensemble of London based theatre artists.

With: Bethany Denham, Mateus Monteiro, Sofia Canosa, Jiazheng Li.

We also request that everyone wear a mask when moving around the building, wash their hands often and practice self-distancing.  We have reduced capacities to allow for this.

You and your bubble will be invited to choose a seat and self-distance yourselves from others.

We will be running a normal bar service with extra tables for your drinking comfort.
