The Long Life & Great Good Fortune of John Clare (2013)

Thu 24 Oct 2013 - Sat 16 Nov 2013

John Clare returns!

This is another chance to see Eastern Angles' critically acclaimed production which tells the story of a man who believes he is the ‘peasant poet' John Clare and is obsessed with Neil Diamond.

His psychiatrist Melody tries to fathom out the reason behind her patients delusions while her partner is fixated on his own version of the legend. In their search for the truth the characters reveal some startling stories and life changing truths.

This production has received four stars from The Times who described it as "Superb" and The Guardian said it was "gripping intelligent and acted with verve...the east of England would be a far poorer place without the indispensable Eastern Angles"
