Winchester Festival: A Fruitful Season – Keats in Winchester

St Lawrence's Church, Winchester

7th Jul 2019 3.00pm - 7th Jul 2019 Event Type: Festival

John Keats is one of England’s favourite poets. In these performances, 2TimeTheatre presents a play for voices by Cecily O’Neill, celebrating Keats’ visit to Winchester in 1819. Based on Keats’ letters and poems, the script includes delightful descriptions of Winchester and of the writing of his most popular poem Ode to Autumn. It traces Keats’ obsessive love for his ‘Bright Star’ Fanny Brawne, his attempts to write a successful tragedy with his friend Charles Armitage Brown, and his increasing ill health. Performed by professional actors, and with original music, the play is introduced by Professor Christopher Mulvey.

2TimeTheatre’s previous productions for Winchester Festival include Venus and Adonis, Meeting Miss Austen and An Honest Soldier.
