Rowan McCabe (BBC Breakfast, Radio 3’s The Verb) is the world’s first Door-to-Door Poet. In 2019-20, he travelled around England, knocking on stranger’s doors and writing poems for them, for free, on any subject of their choosing. Through this bold and arguably stupid act, he was trying to prove absolutely anyone can enjoy poetry and that strangers aren’t as scary as they’re made out to be. As world events took over, the project was pushed in a very different direction…

A show about trust, identity and community, this funny and thought-provoking mixture of theatre and spoken word tells the story of what happened to Rowan in the build-up to the lockdown, including his visit to ‘the most deprived town in the UK’, Buckingham Palace, and the isolated island of Lundy. At the heart of it is a discussion about the hopes and fears of a whole nation, during one of the most turbulent times in its history.
