John Hegley: Drawings of Dromedaries (and other creatures) at The Wardrobe Theatre

About

An evening of poems, drawings, stories and possibly dancing.

Included in the spectacle are a pair of Dromedaries, alongside a number of newly composed pieces touching on John Keats's letters and leisure activities. The singing camel (not to be confused with a dromedary) which the poet imagined in a letter to Jane and Mariane Renolds makes an appearance, although which song it sings is yet to be decided.

Other animals include Monsieur Robinet's faithful canine companion, Chirac; 19th Century American geologist Florence Bascomb's dog; as well as D. H. Lawrence's tortoise, puffins, cats, frogs, elephants and half a dragon.

Expect a combination of new pieces and species, and a batch selected from an extensive back catalogue.

Includes some plant-based material and rhyming language. A performance devised to suit adults, but of interest to some nine-year-olds.
