Prufrock's LoveSong

12 - 20 November 2021

Directed by Elsa May

Just when you thought it were safe to put that poetry book away. Along comes this jaunty little play. Set in a café. Near a bay. Written by T.S Eliot n Elsa May.... Remember that poem you studied in English 101, back in th mid 1500's? n you always thought of it fondly as th poem with sooo much more meaning than first meets th brain... because ur lecturerer told you it did? Turns out T.S Eliot was BIG on referencing all sorts of authors, from all over th shop - other poets, playwrights, philosophers, novelists n even music composers. Coupled with th fact that Eliot hadda rubbish love life, was enough to inspire E. M May to write a play about th poem. It kinda starts somethink like this...

"In the room the women come and go

Talking of Michelangelo."
