Ties that Bind
Tue Nov 21, 18:30 - Tue Nov 21, 19:30
The most intensely felt and memorable experiences of our lives involve the ties that bind us to other people. In this performance John Maytham reads classic and little-known poems about families – poets’ personal memories of birth, child-rearing and death, marriage and divorce, partnership and breakup, words uttered in anger and words uttered in love. Compiled by Finuala Dowling, this moving, funny and deeply true script reminds the audience of what it means to be someone’s child, parent, sibling, spouse, or simply a fellow human being.
