Rowan McCabe presents
Door-to-Door Poetry (Preview)
“What do you think would happen if you knocked on a stranger’s house and offered to write them a poem? OK. What if you did it in a council estate in the North East of England?”
Rowan McCabe is the world's first Door-to-Door Poet. Through this funny and thought-provoking mix of spoken word and theatre, find out about the people he's met on his journey around the North East; from his visit to an imam at a mosque, to his appearance on BBC Breakfast and his trip to the 'roughest street in Stockton'. Exploring issues about community and loneliness, at the heart of it all lies a simple, yet terrifying question: Can we trust strangers?
'A must-see' - Tim Wells, Morning Star.
'The most interesting contribution to cultural life from anyone in poetry recently' – Sophia Walker.
This performance is priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means that tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience. Click here to find out more.
Rowan will be running a Proper Poetry Workshop at ARC on Tue 27 Mar at 6pm - whether you've never written a poem in your life, or you've been writing since the day you could hold a crayon, all are welcome to this free session. For more information and to book your place please click here.
