A Theatre For Dreamers - NEW DATE

RNCM - Royal Northern College of Music | Manchester

Publisher/HostRNCM - Royal Northern College of Music
NEW DATE.
This event was originally scheduled to take place on Monday 30 March 2020, and was previously postponed to Wednesday 9 September 2020. Original tickets are still valid.
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)
