Alton Fringe Theatre presents T S Eliot: The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock & The Waste Land

Wednesday 8 March, 7.30pm–9pm

This is a rare opportunity to hear two of the 20th century’s most famous poems read aloud for an audience by kind permission of the Eliot Estate and his publishers Faber and Faber. 

The Love Song (published 1915) points the way to the more controversial poem, The Waste Land (1922.) The latter reflects Eliot’s experience of a fragmented, urban world in the aftermath of the First World War. The Love Song will be performed as a monologue and then five actors will give voice to the many characters, ideas and sounds of The Waste Land. The performance will be followed by an informal discussion. Tickets include a complementary glass of wine/soft drink.

For more information please ask at Farnham Library or email: farnham.library@surreycc.gov.uk
