Immerse yourself in gorgeous lines of poetry to renew your understanding of one of the 20th century’s most exceptional poets.

This is a rare opportunity to hear the entirety of Eliot’s poetic masterpiece, spoken live by actor and poet John Farrell, artistic director and co-founder of Figures of Speech Theatre. In 2011, with special permission from the Eliot Estate, Farrell premiered a one-man recitation of Eliot’s complex, deeply moving meditation on time, memory, and the human spirit. He has since toured his performance of Four Quartets throughout the US and Canada.

Saturday, April 9 | 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Doors open at 7:00; 85 minutes; no intermission; informal discussion with artist to follow

Tickets are available for $15 in advance, $18 at the door, and $22 for preferred seating (sliding scale available)
